Approximate equations for the working stress design of common column sections subject to flexure, both for tension and compression control, are presented for use by designers who prefer formulas to charts and tables. These equations may be used in design like the corresponding semiempirical formulas given in the ACI Code for ultimate strength design. They are about as accurate as the familiar flexural formula.
