# Example E.1A W-shape column design with pinned ends

# Example E1.B and E1.D W-shape column design with intermediate bracing

The results are generated with SDC Verifier 3.6 and calculated with FEMAP v11.0.0 Task: Redesign the column from Example E. 1A assuming the column is laterally braced about y-y axis and torsionally braced at the midpoint. Solution: From Chapter 2 of ASCE/SEI 7, the required compressive strength is: Column Selection From AISC Specification Commentary […]

# Example G.3 Angle in shear

The results are generated with SDC Verifier 3.6 and calculated with FEMAP v11.0.0 Task: Determine the available shear strength and adequacy of L5×3×¼ (LLV) ASTM A36 with end shears of 3.50 kips from dead load and 10.5 kips from live load. Solution: From AISC Manual Table 2-4, the material properties are as follows: ASTM A36 Fy = 36 ksi […]

# Example G.4 Rectangular HSS in shear

# Example G.6 Doubly symmetric shape in weak axis shear

# Example G.7 Singly symmetric shape in weak axis shear

The results are generated with SDC Verifier 3.6 and calculated with FEMAP v11.0.0 Task: Verify the available shear strength and adequacy of C9×20 ASTM A36 channel with end shears of 5.00 kips from dead load and 15.0 kips from live load in the weak direction. Solution: From AISC Manual Table 2-4, the material properties are as […]

# Example F.3A W-shape flexural member with noncompact flanges in strong axis bending

# Example F.5 I-shape flexural member in minor-axis bending

# Example E.2 Built-up column with a slender web

# Example F.6 HSS flexural member with compact flanges

The results are generated with SDC Verifier 3.7.1 and calculated with FEMAP v11.0.0. The example was calculated in American unit system. Note: Maximum deflection and beam selection has not implemented yet in SDC Verifier. Task: Select a square ASTM A500 Grade B HSS beam to span 7.5 ft. The loads are a […]
