Tube / Pipe Column Design Based on AISC Manual 13th Edition (AISC 360-05)
INPUT DATA & DESIGN SUMMARY
COLUMN SECTION (Tube or Pipe) HSS4X4X1/2 Tube
COLUMN YIELD STRESS F
y
= 46 ksi
DIMENSION H = 14 ft
AXIAL LOAD, ASD P = 6 kips
STRONG AXIS BENDING ? (1=Yes, 0=No) = > 4 no, weak axis, y-y, bending.
UNIFORM LATERAL LOAD, ASD w = 0.15 k / ft
CONCENTRATED LATERAL LOAD, ASD F = 0.1 kips at 12 ft from bottom
THE DESIGN IS ADEQUATE.
