NDS Table 11.3.1AYield Limit Equations
Posted 04 January 2012 - 05:07 PM
It appears that Yield mode Is, IIIs, and IV double the single shear value, but Im does not. Can someone explain to me why equation 11.3-1 and 11.3-7 are exactly the same but both mentioned? Thanks.

Another question: do you have a judgement "feel" for what failure modes will fail before others will? Also, why couldn't equation J-3 be used in lieu of all of these and pick it from the values tabulated from chapter 11?
It seems that J-3 is much quicker than the method done on the NCEES practice exam problem on the Vertical PM portion. Thoughts?

The NDS commentary has helped me understand what to do. I believe the yield limit equations on the exam should be avoided if one can use the J-3 values applied from the NDS tables. If anyone is interested, you can click on the above link and do a search for "J-3". It should take you straight to the commentary discussion.

In the exam, I would say try to use the tables, it'll save your time. Please make note of the foot notes i.e.the tabulated values are for 10D penetration (I don't have the NDS with me now, please check). If it is less than 10D but greater than the minimum required (6D), you have to take a reduction.
