Unbraced Length of Members w/ Intermediate Nodes

Say I have columns with intermediate nodes that are not stability bracing points (for example - nodes where cold formed girts are connected). When using SELECT command - how to instruct program to account for the actual height of columns and to ignore intermediate nodes?

I am using AISC LRFD so the design of physical members is not supported in this case.

thanks

  • To each segment that makes up the physical member, specify the distance between points where the physical member is braced against flexural buckling, torsional buckling or flexural torsional buckling, using the parameters

    LX, LY and LZ for calculating axial compression capacity

    UNT and UNB for calculating bending capacity
