# V. AISC ASD - Compression and Biaxial Bending

Determine the suitability of a W14x109 shape to resist axial compression and biaxial bending.

## Reference

AISC Allowable Stress Design, 9th Edition,Example 4, page 3-11.

## Problem

 P =200 kips

 Mz = 120 ft·kips (strong axis)

 My = 40 ft·kips (weak axis)

 KL = 14 ft

 Cm= 0.85

Maximum unbraced length of compression flange is 15 ft.
