I think it should be 250.

Selvi said: (Jul 7, 2017)  
For wind slenderness ratio 250.

No, this answer is right. I know slenderness 250. But from to the wind 350.

It should be 250.

It's 350.

And 250 is for the same condition with compression member.

180 for reversible loading.

Slenderness ratio.

For Pure tension member = 400 Compression/Reversible stress= 180.
Roof truss=350.

It's 250.

The Answer is 350, because 250 is not classified in tension member in any condition in IS CODE.

The compression member with
1) Dead load and imposed load=180,
2) with wind and earthquake action=250,
3) with lateral torsion buckling-300.

Now, the Tension member
1) With the reversal of the direct stress other than wind or earthquake -180.
2) Reversal of the stress with wind and earthquake-350.
3) Member always under tension other than pre-tensioned member-400.

A tension member subjected to reversal of stress i.e., windload, seismic load.

For wind 250.
For wind reversal 350.
