CSA Beam Column Design


Comparisons are made between results of 81 recent tests on beam columns subjected to unsymmetrical and biaxially eccentric loads and the capacities predicted by design equations recommended by CSA standard S16.1-M78
 — Steel Structures for Buildings
 — Limit States Design. 

It is concluded that the general provisions of the standard lead to satisfactory designs whereas the detailed procedure given in the Appendix of the standard may lead to a higher proportion of unsafe results.
