    Description

    Equations for deformation and stress, which are the basis for tension members and beam and column design, are discussed in this chapter. The first two sections cover tapered members, straight members, and special considerations such as notches, slits, and size effect. A third section presents stability criteria for members subject to buckling and for members subject to special conditions. The equations are based on mechanics principles and are not given in the design code format found in Allowable Stress Design or Load and Resistance Factor Design specifications.
