6.5.6.1.2 Serviceability Determination

The effective width, bd, used in determining serviceability is calculated as in Section 6.5.6.1.1, except that fd is substituted for f

6.5.6.2 Uniformly Compressed Elements with More Than One Intermediate Stiffener

In the AISI North American Specification [7], new design equations are provided for determining the effective width of uniformly compressed stiffened elements with multiple intermediate stiffeners.
