Design Example 1 Cantilevered Overhead Sign Support - Truss with Post Problem statement: Location: I-85 Atlanta, GA Design a structure to support a sign 22 ft. long and 11 ft. high. The distance from the center of the upright to the center of the sign is 24 ft. The distance from the base of the
I design base plates for circular columns using the AISC ASD Manual, pages 3-106 to 3-110. To calculate "c", I use the formula for "m", since the formula for "n" does not apply. Also, it seems to me that the formula for "n'" will not apply unless the column is very large in diameter (allowing the portion of the base plate inside the column to ...

A W10 x 49 column is supported by a concrete pier whose top surface is 19 inches x 19 inches. Design a base plate given that the column dead load is 100 kips and live load is 150 kips. Base plate material is A36 steel and concrete compressive strength is 3 ksi. Code used: AISC Steel Construction Manual 13th Edition
The design resistance is calculated in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-1 and the UK National Annex. In addition to selecting the column and the grade of concrete, the user must select the size, thickness and steel grade of the baseplate. Baseplates for circular and square hollow sections must be square.
Select the column and right click. Click OK in the Attention window. The base plate is created at the end of the column and the properties dialog appears. Modify the baseplate properties to suit specific requirements. Both the column and the plate are welded together 1.0 INTRODUCTION. Column base plate connections are the critical interface between the steel structure and the foundation. These con- nections are used in buildings to support gravity loads and function as part of lateral-load-resisting systems.
