Question 1: (a) Determine the factored axial load or the required axial strength, Pu of a column in an office building with a regular roof configuration. The service axial loads on the column are as follows: PD = 200 kips (dead load) PL = 300 kips (floor live load) PS = 150 kips (snow load) PW = ±60 kips (wind load) PE = ±40 kips (seismic load) (b) Calculate the required nominal axial compression strength, Pn of the column. Question 2: • What section in the AISC Manual deals with Load Combinations? Provide Chapter and page. • What Chapter in the AISC Manual addresses the design of tension members? • Provide an example of a steel tension member that you can find within Matherly Hall or immediately around it.
