Night School 14: Fundamentals of Stability Part 6

Design of Members Subject to Compression and Flexure

This lecture will begin with an overview of the fundamental stability behavior of beam-column members. The discussion then will focus on the background to and use of beam-column interaction equations in the AISC Specification Section H1.3 for compact I-section members loaded in major-axis bending within the plane of a frame. Efficient and economical design of rolled W-section beam-columns using the AISC Manual Section 6 design aids will be addressed. The session will close with a focus on advanced procedures, sanctioned within the commentary of the AISC Specifications, that allow the designer to account for substantial increases in the strength of WT and other singly-symmetric beam-column members.

This presentation is part of the eight session Night School course on Fundamentals of Stability.
