Angle Steel Member Capacity Based on AISC 360-10

INPUT DATA & DESIGN SUMMARY


ANGLE SIZE L8X6X1
STEEL YIELD STRESS Fy = 36 ksi

AXIAL COMPRESSION FORCE P= 10 kips, ASD


STRONG GEOMETRIC AXIS EFFECTIVE LENGTH kLx = 20 ft
WEAK GEOMETRIC AXIS EFFECTIVE LENGTH kLy = 10 ft

STRONG GEOMETRIC AXIS BENDING MOMENT Mrx = 5 ft-kips, ASD


STRONG GEOMETRIC AXIS BENDING UNBRACED LENGTH Lbx = 20 ft, (AISC 360-10 F2.2.c)
STRONG DIRECTION SHEAR LOAD, ASD Vstrong = 77 kips

WEAK GEOMETRIC AXIS BENDING MOMENT Mry = 6 ft-kips, ASD


WEAK GEOMETRIC AXIS BENDING UNBRACED LENGTH Lby = 10 ft
WEAK DIRECTION SHEAR LOAD, ASD Vweak = 60 kips

THE DESIGN IS ADEQUATE.
