V. AISC LRFD - Select Compression and Biaxial Bending

To select the lightest ASTM A992 W14 section capable of carrying an axial compression plus biaxial bending.

Reference

AISC Load Factor Resistance Design, 3rd Edition, Example 6.4, page 6-9.

Problem

Fy = 50 ksi

Pu = 400 kips

Muy = 80 ft·kips, Muz = 250 ft·kips

Lb = 14 ft

Reverse curvature bending with equal end moments for both axis.
