Homework Problems Combined Loading
(1) A W14x90 (50 ksi steel) tensile member with Lb = 14ft is subjected to axial service loads PDL
= 150 kips and PLL = 180 kips and service moments MDLx = 130 kft and MLLX = 80 kft. If Cb =
1.0, is the member safe for th
Example 4. 1 7
Note that the results of this example compare favorably with the values given in the
column load tables.
The design strength is 61 kips
A bearing-type connection as shown below is to be connected with 7/8 A325 bolts with threads
excluded from the shear plane. Fy = 50 ksi and Fu = 70 ksi. Find the minimum number of bolts
necessary to support the applied factored loading.
