Abstract : The theoretical and experimental evaluation of the ultimate capacity of biaxially loaded, hollow, square box, steel columns is presented herein. The columns were loaded through balls at their ends in such a manner as to induce bending about both axes of the cross section as well as an axial load. The purpose of the research described herein was to theoretically predict the ultimate capacities of such columns and to experimentally verify a sample of these predictions. It was felt that such research was a necessary step in the evolution of a rational design procedure for biaxially loaded box columns in structural frameworks. The context within which this work took place is outlined, the results of the theoretical and experimental work are given, the theory is explained, and the significance of this research is related to the problem of the rational design of biaxially loaded columns in frameworks.
