Compute the moment amplification factor B1 for the member of Problem 6.2-2. a. Use LRFD. b. Use ASD. 6.6-3 A W14 × 99 of A992 steel is used as a 14-foot-long beam–column with Kx = 0.9 and Ky = 1.0. (An analysis was performed consistent with the effective length method; therefore, the flexural rigidity, EI, was unreduced.) The member is braced against
How much service live load, in kips per foot, can be supported? The member weight is the only dead load. The axial compressive load consists of a service dead load of 10 kips and a service live load of 20 kips. Do not consider moment amplification. Bending is about the x axis, and the steel is A992.
a. Use LRFD.
b. Use ASD.
