Flexural Buckling[edit]

For F_y/F_e ≤ 2.25

  • ())

For F_y/F_e > 2.25

Sections Not Subject to Torsional or Torsional-Flexural Buckling[edit]

  • = π2E/(KL/r)2

Definitions[edit]

  • = flexural buckling stress (ksi, MPa)
  • = elastick buckling stress (ksi, MPa)
  • = specified minimum yield stress (ksi, MPa)
  • = specified minimum tensile strength (ksi, MPa)
  • = gross area of cross section (in2, mm2)
  • = effective net area of cross section, as reduced for holes and/or local buckling effects (in2, mm2)
