A vertical column has the cross-sectional area shown in Fig1. (dimensions mm). The column carries a vertical compressive point-load of 300kN at C.
Calculate the following:
1. The second moments of area, Izz, and Ixx.
2. The maximum values of the compressive and tensile stresses.
3. The position of the cross section where the stress is zero.
Solution attaches a jpeg to illustrate and a PDF to explain how to calculate moments, maximum values of tensile stresses and the position of a cross section at stress zero.
