Problem 11.9-12 Determine the maximum permissible length L max for a steel pipe column that is fixed at the base and free at the top and must support an axial load P ± 500 kN (see figure). The column has outside diameter d ± 200 mm, wall thickness , and . s Y ± 250 MPa t ± 10 mm, E ± 200 GPa SECTION 11.9 Design Formulas for Columns 897 Solution 11.9-12 Steel pipe column Fixed-free column Use AISC formulas.
