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 P-M 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.
