Question 2 The shown vertical steel column is used to support a structure. Assume the column to be fixed at its top and pinned at its bottom. A 15 kN load

is applied at an eccentric distance of 250 mm as shown. determine the maximum stress in the column. E=210 GPa, Yield stress =250 MPa. A=4960 mm² d=363 mm Ixx=102(106) mm²
