13–135. The W200 * 46 A-36-steel column can be
considered pinned at its top and fixed at its base. Also, the
column is braced at its mid-height against the weak axis.
Determine the maximum axial load the column can support
without causing it to buckle.

Section Properties. From the table listed in the appendix, the section properties for
a W200 * 46 are
A = 5890 mm2 = 5.89 A 10 - 3 B m2
Iy = 15.3 A 106 B mm4 = 15.3 A 10 - 6 B m4
Ix = 45.5 A 106 B mm4 = 45.5 A 10 - 6 B m4
Critical Buckling Load. For buckling about the strong axis, Kx = 0.7 and Lx = 12 m.
Since the column is fixed at its base and pinned at its top,
Pcr =

p2 c 200 A 109 B d c 45.5 A 10 - 6 B d
[0.7(12)]2
= 1.273 A 106 B N = 1.27 MN
For buckling about the weak axis, Ky = 1 and Ly = 6 m since the bracing provides
a support equivalent to a pin. Applying Euler’s formula,
Pcr =

*13–136. The structural A-36 steel column has the cross
section shown. If it is fixed at the bottom and free at the top,
determine the maximum force P that can be applied at A
without causing it to buckle or yield. Use a factor of safety
of 3 with respect to buckling and yielding.
