shaft/pack (or gusset plate) connection as follows:


• X is the slenderness ratio of a solid column having the same length t as the spaced column, the same cross-sectional area (Atot = nA, where A is the cross-sectional area of a shaft, bh, and n is the number of shafts), and the same second moment of area about the y-y axis, /tot, i.e:

and, for the sections shown in Figure 8.6, bh3 ( a + h V

/tot = — + 2bh ( —-— I for sections A-A, and C-C (8.22)
