Problem 11.9-36 A square wood column with side dimensions b (see figure) is constructed of a structural grade of eastern white pine for which F c ± 8.0 MPa and E ± 8.5 GPa. An axial force P ± 100 kN acts on the column. (a) If the dimension b ± 120 mm, what is the maximum allowable length L max of the column? (b) If the length L ± 4.0 m, what is the minimum required dimension b min ? 912 CHAPTER 11 Columns Solution 11.9-36 Wood column (square cross section) (a) M AXIMUM LENGTH L max FOR b ± d ± 120 mm From Eq.
