RAPID SELECTION OF W COLUMNS (AASHO METHOD OF DESIGN)

Curves are presented which can aid the rapid selection of the required column size for given forces. The curves which are developed for A36 steel, can be used for A588 and other higher strengths. Basic equations are presented and the conditions limiting the use of these curves are listed. Examples are presented which illustrate the use of the curves. Graphs of column capacity curves are included.
