W-Shape Flexural Member Design According to AISC F.1-1A

Verification Example

VE 1004 09/22/2018 RFEM RF-STEEL AISC Design Checks

Consider an ASTM A992 W 18×50 beam forspan and uniform dead and live loads as shown in Figure 1. The member is limited to a maximum nominal depth of 18 in. The live load deflection is limited to L/360. The beam is simply supported and continuously braced. Verify the available flexural strength of the beam selected based on LRFD and ASD.
