The

`W10\times 22`

wide flange shape steel column AB is pinned on one end and fixed on the other end and carries a centric compressive load

`P=15`

kip. Cables

`BC`

and

`BD`

are taut and prevent motion of point

`B`

in the xz plane.Use Euler's formula, a factor of safety of 2.0 , and neglecting the tension in the cables.

`I_(\times )=118in.4,Iyy=11.4in.4,A=6.49in.2,E=29\times 10^(6)(16)/(m).2`

Part a:

`,`

For buckling in the

`x-z`

plane using lyy, determine: the value of "C" . Answer the maximum allowable length " L " (ft). Answe। Part b:

`,`

For buckling in the y -z plane using Ixx , determine: 3. the value of "C" . Answer: 4. the maximum allowable length "

`L`

" (ft). Answer: 5. the overall maximum length of the column ( ft ) which is te lower answer from questions 6 and 9 .
