B.Allowable Load as per AISC 360-10 14th Ed.

B.1 Allowable Compressive Stress as per Ch. E

Does b/t > 0.45*sqrt(E/Fy)? No


Does the slenderness ratio Lc/r > 200? No
Therefore, the geometry is consider as a slender element

Effective Length Member Lc = K*Le = 350 mm


Elastic Buckling Stress Fe = E*(p/(Lc/rw))2 = 1421.4 Mpa

Leg Support - Operating Condition

The crticial stress of the member

Does the ratio Lc/r > 4.71*sqrt(E/Fy)? No

The critical stress Fcr = (0.658^(Fy/Fe))Fy = 253.6 Mpa


Nominal Compressive Stress Pn = (Fcr*A)/1.67 = 70739 N

B.2 Allowable Flexural Stress as per Ch. F

Does b/t > 0.54*sqrt(E/Fy)? No


Does b/t > 0.91*sqrt(E/Fy)? No
Therefore, the section is consider as compact

B.2.1 Limit States due to Yielding

Elastic Yield Moment My = Fy*Sw = 617375 N-mm


Limit State due to Yielding Mn1 = 1.5*My = 926062.5 N-mm

B.2.3 Limit States due to Leg Local Buckling

2
Fcr = 0.71E/(b/t)
= 1840.3 Mpa

Mn2 = 0
= 0.0 N-mm

Nominal Flexural Strength Mn = min(Mn1,Mn2) = 926063 N-mm


Allowable Flexural Moment Mc = Mn/1.67 = 554528 N-mm
Therefore,The limit state of the member was due to Yielding

Note:
Since the calculation is refering bending
about the minor axis, the limit state of
yielding and leg local buckling is apply

C. Stress Ratio as per Ch. H

Does the ratio Pr/Pc < 0.2? Yes

Ratio = Fn/2Pn+(M/Mc)
= 0.98

Does the stress ratio, Ratio < 1? Yes


Therefore, the selected member for the leg support is sufficient
