4. Combination 4: 1.2D+1.0W+0.5(LrorSorR)
5. Combination 5: 0.9D+1.0W

Write the expression for load combination 1.

L1=1.4D ...... (I)

Here, load combination 1 is L1.

Substitute 9kips for D in Equation (I).

L1=1.4×9kips=12.6kips

Write the expression for load combination 2.

L2=1.2D+1.6L+0.5(LrorSorR) ...... (II)

Here, load combination 2 is L2.

Substitute 9kips for D, 0kips for L and 7kips for (LrorSorR) in Equation (II).

L2=(1.2×9kips)+(1.6×0kips)+(0.5×7kips)=14.3kips

Write the expression for load combination 3.

L3=1.2D+1.6(LrorSorR)+(0.5Lor0.5W) ...... (III)

Here, load combination 3 is L3.

Substitute 9kips for D, 0kips for L, 8kips for W and 7kips for (LrorSorR) in Equation (III).

L3=(1.2×9kips)+(1.6×7kips)+(0.5×8kips)=26kips

L4=1.2D+1.0W+0.5(LrorSorR) ...... (IV)

Here, load combination 4 is L4.

Substitute 9kips for D, 8kips for W, 0kips for L and 0kips for (LrorSorR) in Equation (IV).

L4=(1.2×9kips)+(1.0×8kips)+(0.5×7kips)=22.3kips

Write the expression for load combination 5.

L5=0.9D+1.0W ...... (V)

Here, load combination 5 is L5.

Substitute 9kips for D and 8kips for W in Equation (V).

L5=(0.9×9kips)+(1.0×8kips)=16.1kips

From the above 5 load combinations L3 is maximum.

Conclusion:

Thus, the maximum factored load and AISC combination is estimated bythis expression: L1=1.4D

Expert Solution
To determine

(b)

The required design strength of the column.

### Explanation of Solution

The load combination L3 is the required design strength of the column b, because the load combination L3 includes all the criteria like rain, wind, live load and dead load.

Conclusion:

Thus, the design strength of the column is estimated by the load combination and concept.

Expert Solution
To determine

(c)

The required nominal strength for a resistance factor of 0.90.

The required nominal strength of the column for a resistance factor is 28.9kips.

### Explanation of Solution

Concept used:

Write the expression for nominal strength of the column for LRFD.

Rn=Ruϕ ...... (VI)

Here, the maximum factored load is Ru, the nominal strength of the column is Rn and the resistance factor is ϕ.

Substitute 0.90 for ϕ and 26kips for Ru in Equation (VI).

Rn=26kips0.90=28.9kips

Conclusion:

Thus, the required nominal strength of the column for a resistance factor is calculated by the expression for nominal strength of LFRD.
