886 CHAPTER 11 Columns Problem 11.6-10 A wide-flange steel column with length is fixed at the base and free at the top (see figure). The load P acting on the column is intended to be centrally applied,but because of unavoidable discrepancies in construction, an eccentricity ratio of 0.25 is specified. Also, the following data are supplied: and . (a) What is the maximum compressive stress in the column? (b) What is the factor of safety n with respect to yielding of the steel? s max P ± 310 kN s Y ± 290 MPa E ± 200 GPa, L ± 3.8 m W 310 * 74 Solution 11.6-10 (a) M AXIMUM COMPRESSION STRESS ; s max ± 47.6 MPa s max ± P A a 1 + ec r 2 sec a L e 2 r A P EA bb L ± 3.8 m L e ± 2 L L e ± 7.6 m ec r 2 ± 0.25 P ± 310 kN E ± 200 GPa I ± 23.4 * 10 6 mm 4 r ± A I A r ± 49.841 mm W 310 * 74 A ± 9420 mm 2 I ± I 2 (b) F ACTOR OF SAFETY WITH RESPECT TO YIELDING ; P y ± 712 kN n ± P y P n ± 2.30 solve numerically for
