# V. AISC 360-16 I Tension LRFD

To verify the tensile yield strength of an I section using the LRFD method from the AISC 360-16 code.

## Reference

1. Steel Construction Manual, 15th Edition, American Institute of Steel Construction, 2017

## Details

Verify the tensile yield and tensile rupture strength of an I section (W8X21) using the LRFD method. The material is A992 (Fy = 50 ksi, Fu = 65 ksi)

The area of the bolt holes is assumed to be zero. A known shear lag factor of 0.908 is directly specified.

The length of the member is 25 ft. It is loaded axial in tension with a dead load of 30 kips and a live load of 90 kips.

## Validation

The factored axial load, Pu = 1.2×30 + 1.6×90 = 180 kips

Tensile Yield Strength

The tensile yield strength: ϕtYPnY = ϕtY×Fy×Ag = 0.9×50×6.16 = 277.2 kips

Ratio for yield strength: 0.649

Tensile Rupture Strength

For this example, An is assumed equal to Ag .

Effective area, Ae = An×U = 6.16×0.908 = 5.593 in2

The tensile rupture strength = ϕtRPnR = ϕtR×Fu×Ae = 0.75×65×5.593 = 272.672 kips

Ratio for rupture strength: 0.660

## Results

Table 1. Comparison of results
Tensile yield strength (kips) 277.2 277.2 none
Ratio 0.649 0.649 none
Tensile rupture strength (kips) 272.7 272.7 none
Ratio 0.660 0.660 none

***NOTE : AISC 360-16 Design Statement for STAAD.Pro.
*** AXIS CONVENTION ***:
========================
The capacity results and intermediate results in the report follow the notations
and axes labels as defined in the AISC 360-16 code.
The analysis results are reported in STAAD.Pro axis convention and the AISC 360:16
design results are reported in AISC 360-16 code axis convention.
------------    -----------     -------------
X               Z          Axis typically parallel to the sections principal major axis.
Y               Y          Axis typically parallel to the sections principal minor axis.
Z               X          Longitudinal axis perpendicular to the cross section.
SECTION FORCES AXIS MAPPING: -
------------    -----------     -------------
Pz              FX         Axial force.
Vy              FY         Shear force along minor axis.
Vx              FZ         Shear force along major axis.
Tz              MX         Torsional moment.
My              MY         Bending moment about minor axis.
Mx              MZ         Bending moment about major axis.
*** DESIGN MESSAGES ***:
=======================
1. Section classification reported is for the cross section and loadcase that
produced the worst case design ratio for flexure/compression Capacity results.
2. Results for any Capacity/Check that is not relevant for a section/loadcase
based on the code clause in AISC 360-16 will not be shown in the report.
3. Bending results are reported as being �about� the relevant axis (X/Y), while
the results for shear are reported as being for shear forces �along� the axis.
E.g : Mx indicates bending about the X axis, while Vx indicates shear along
the X axis.
*** ABBREVIATIONS ***:
