Two lines of bolts remove area trom the cross-section, depending on section dimensions;
Assume nominal 10"width, with 3/4" + l!~"bolt holes;
Thi$means we need to add in 2 (9.5 x 7/8)~ 16.625 in2
So:
required gross area =155 + 16.625 = 172in2
Consulting table A-4.1 we select a 14 x 14 with A= 182.3 in 2
Check actual net area with width of 13.5" (!1Q19.5"). 2
An = (13.5 x 13.5) - 2(13.5 x 7/8) =182.3" 23.6 = 158.7in
Since actual An ~ required An= 155 in2,

To select cross-section, first assume Cp;for examp1e,assume Cp= 0.7. Then, Pc =

. B = (1567/625) / (0.8) = 3.13
. Cp=2.19-(2.192-3.13)112=0.9.
Since actual Cpis greater than that assumed, the 10x12 willwork; the question is whether
a smallercross-section willwork.
Check next smallersize: a IOxIO.
Find actual value ofCp for a lOx10--> same calculations as for a lOx12, so Cp= 0.9 as
before.

loads. Additionally,the Cpfactor willbe smallerfor an 8xlO, further reducing the
capacity.
The correct answer is therefore a lOxIO.
1. b) 2nd-floor column: Same procedure as for 1st-floor column, but need to re-calculate

To select cross-section, first assume Cp;for example, assume Cp= 0.8. Then, F'e=

· F*c = 1300(1.] 5)(1.15)(1.0) = ]719 psi
· FCE = 0.3(1,600,000) / (8.32 x 12/3.5)2 = 590
· A =(1 + 590/1719) / (2 x 0.8) =- 0.84
