Description:

          This application computes elastic effective length factors for braced or unbraced frames using PTC Mathcad solve blocks to solve the equations for effective length factors, eliminating the need to use the alignment chart in the AISC Standards Commentary.The required input includes the joint stiffness at each end of the column. Any practical number of K factors may be calculated in one run of this application.
