Correspondence on The Strength of Square Steel Box Columns - Design Curves and their Theoretical Basis by G.H. Little

Mr D. Allen (M): The author has developed some useful curves, conveniently presented in his Table l. I agree with the philosophy of using the full cross-sectional properties for design; it has always been confusing to have to deal with effective sections, especially when the effectiveness is determined by the stress level. How simple to use one section for all computations!
