Leon, Roberto T.; Hajjar, Jerome F. (2008). "Limit State Response of Composite Columns and Beam-Columns Part II: Application of Design Provisions for the 2005 AISC Specification," Engineering Journal, American Institute of Steel Construction, Vol. 45, pp. 21-46.

The 2005 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings contains substantial changes to the design provisions for composite members and composite columns in particular. This paper presents detailed and cross-sectional analysis and design examples for composite columns illustrating the new provisions. The paper focuses on providing a detailed description of the development of simplified equations for the creation of interaction curves for composite beam-columns. This is the second part of a two-part paper; the first paper contains detailed discussion of the development of the new provisions.
