Design of Steel Columns:
Steel Column Design

Angle Compactness
• Check the compactness of an angle shape under uniform compression.

Rectangular HSS Compactness
• Check the compactness of a rectangular HSS or box shape under uniform compression.
Round HSS Compactness
• Check the compactness of a roung HSS or pipe under uniform compression.
I-Shapes and Channel Compactness
• Check the compactness of an I-shape or channel section under uniform compression.
Non-slender Rolled Shape Compressive Strength
• Calculate the compressive strength of a non-slender rolled shape other than angles.
Non-slender Torsional/Flexural-Torsional Buckling Compressive Strength
• Calculate the torsional and flexural-torsional buckling compressive strength of a non-slender symmetric rolled shape. This calculation may control the design of wide flange and similarly shaped columns when the torsional unbraced length is larger than the lateral unbraced length.
Non-slender Angle Compressive Strength
• Calculate the compressive strength of a non-slender steel angle.
Slender Unstiffened Rolled Shape Compressive Strength
• Calculate the compressive strength of a slender unstiffened rolled shapes other than angles.
Slender Unstiffened Angle Compressive Strength
• Calculate the compressive strength of a slender unstiffened single angle.
Combined Forces Strength
• Check steel member subjected to a compression load and flexural loading around the weak and/or strong axis.
Steel Column Problem 1
• Given an axial load design a W section steel column using ASD.
Steel Column Problem 2
• Given a factored axial load, design a W section steel column using LRFD.
