 r=radius of gyration
 F_{a}=allowable axial comp stress

radius of gyration
 term used in column design equal to
 I=moment of inertia of a member
 A=cross sectional area

unit shear stress formula (in a steel beam)
 f_{v}=actual unit shear stress
 V=max vertical shear
 d=overall depth of abeam
 t=thickness of web

horizontal shear stress formula
 f_{v}=3V/2bd X d/d'
 f_{v}=horizontal shear stress
 V=shear force
 b=breadth
 d'=actual depth of beam at the notch
 d=total depth of beam

horizontal shear stress
or
 v=horizontal shear
 V=vertical shear at section under consideration
 Q=statistical moment about the neutral axis of the area above the plane under consideration

section modulus
M=bending moment

buckling tendency formula
 kl/r
 k=constant determined by fixity at ends
 *higher k  decreases column load capacity
 l=unbraced length of column
 r=radius of gyration
 ratio of a measure of the buckling tendency of a steel column
 larger the value of kl/r, greater tendency of a column to buckle, resulting in lower column capacity

 *reduce snow load for pitch ovre 20degree and exceeds snow load of 20psf

required width of footing (wall footing)
required width of footing = total load/bearing soil capacity

required area of footing formula (single column footing)
required area of footing = total load (include weight of footing)/bearing capacity of soil

throat area formula
throat area = 0.707 x weld size

allowable load per in of weld formula
allowable load per in of weld=allowable stress X throat area

retaining wall base pressure formula
base pressure = equivalent fluid pressure X height

retaining wall total earth pressure formula
total earth pressure=base pressure X height/2
