Abstract:
The iterative problem of selecting a column cross section to meet strength and long column slenderness requirements which are themselves dependent upon the cross section selected, is greatly simplified by the use of graphs that are derived and demostrated. The graphical aids incorporate a slenderness index and moment magnifying function for use with ultimate load-moment-interaction diagrams.
