NZS 3404-1997 Example 001

WIDE FLANGE MEMBER UNDER COMPRESSION
EXAMPLE DESCRIPTION
The frame object axial strengths are tested in this example.
A continuous column is subjected to factored load N = 200 kN. This example
was tested using the NZS 3404-1997 steel frame design code. The design
capacities are compared with independent hand calculated results.

L = 6 m

RESULTS COMPARISON

Independent results are taken from hand calculations based on the CSI steel
design documentation contained in the file SFD-NZS-3404-1997.pdf, which is
available through the program Help menu.
