# V. AISI 2016 Cylindrical Tubular Section

Determine the flexural strength of a closed cylindrical tubular member subjected to axial compression and bending moment according to AISI S100 2016 specification.

## Reference

Cold-Formed Steel Design: AISI Manual. 2013 ed. Washington, D.C.: American Iron and Steel Institute, 2014. Example II-8.

## Details

The member is a 10' simply-supported span. The section is a 8" diameter closed cylindrical tube with a wall thickness of 0.1".

• Roof live load: PLR = 20 kips
Section properties:
• Area: A = 2.482 in2
• Moment of inertia: I = 19.37 in4
• Section modulus: Sf = 4.841 in3
Material properties:
• E = 29,500 ksi
• G = 11,300 ksi
• Fy = 42 ksi
• Fu = 58 ksi

## Validation

Design forces:

Governing load combination is DL + RLL + WL

Mu = 1.0 (5 kips) (120 in)/4 = 150 in·kips

Section Dimension Checks

Check the outside diameter to wall thickness ratio:

D / t = 8.0 / 0.1 = 80

Hence, OK.

Determine Axial Capacity

Determine the governing equation for Fn:

Since:

Determine Flexural Capacity

Nominal flexural strength (resistance) for yielding and global buckling:

Allowable flexural strength (ASD):

Design flexural strength (LRFD):

## Results

Table 1. AISI 2016 Cylindrical Tubular Section comparison
Flexural strength, ASD $M n e Ω b$ (in·kips) 140 139.481 negligible
Flexural strength, LRFD $ϕ b M n e$ (in·kips) 221 221.286 negligible
