    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.
