Unformatted text preview: 3) Check the adequacy of the design if a factored axial load of 350 kips is applied at an eccentricity e x = 5 in. and e y = 8 in. Use both Breslers reciprocal load method and the load contour method (using charts given in class). For determining the nominal PM diagrams, you are required to use Whitneys stress block. For the yield diagram, you should model the compression zone using Hognestads parabola with a linear descending tail. Use k 3 = 0.85 and Z = 100.
