Dear all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question are as follows:

It is a I-Section joist, the question is find the compressive load could it take with ball-jointed ends.

i want to know what is ball-jointed ends ?? is it mean the base of the I-Section joist ??

if yes, what is the surface area i need to consider ?? only the area of ball-jointed ends ?? or whole area ??

Besides, the compressive load is mean the buckling ??

Thanks and best regards,

Jazz
