Serviceability ( KL / r) max 200 Preferably! AISC E2 K = effective length factor (discussed later) L = length between supports r = radius of gyration = A I / KL / r = column slenderness ratio 2. Ultimate strength a) Overall flexural buckling AISC E3 Figure of Overall Flexural Buckling CE 4401 Steel and Reinforced Concrete Design Steel Compression Members - 2 b) Flexural-torsional buckling (FTB) AISC E4 and E5 Twisting (torsion) or twisting+deflection Figure of Flexural-Torsional Buckling FTB only needs to be checked for angles, double angles, cruciforms, and WT sections. For CE 4401, we will ignore FTB for all shapes. 3.

In such cases, engineers often use the recommended values because they account for the fact that actual support conditions may offer less rotational restraint than one may assume theoretically, particularly if the support is made of concrete, such as a column footing. Steps for Calculating K Factors 1. Find moments of inertia of girders and columns in the plane of buckling . If you do not know your girder and column sizes, it is necessary to estimate them for the purposes of computing an initial K factor....
