Thanks for your reply . It is not just cost but I want to prove my design to client. Actually it becomes very complicated when more than 2 columns .

Can you please give me Roarks formula ? If you have soft copy please send it to me.

Regards

Amit

Amit,
I suggest you refer to Roark's Formulae for Stress &
Strain for a start. Be sure to over-design it as the
cost of the material is peanuts in such an application.
