According to code IS 800-2007.

Teh answer is 180.

It should be 400.

For wind 250.
For wind reversal 350.

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

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.

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

It's 250.

Slenderness ratio.

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

180 for reversible loading.

Anu said:   5 years ago
It's 350.

And 250 is for the same condition with compression member.
