Cmx, Cmy = coefficients applied to bending term in
interaction formula and dependent upon column
curvature caused by applied moments (AISC
Specification, Section 1.6.1)
Mpx, Mpy = plastic bending capacities about x and y axes
(Mpx = ZxFdy, Mpy = ZyFdy)
Mmx, Mmy = moments that can be resisted by the member in the
(a) For columns braced in the weak direction:
EQUATIONS:
Mmx = Mpx
(108a)
Mmy = Mpy
(108b)
(b) For columns unbraced in the weak direction:
EQUATIONS:
Mmx = [1.07 - (*l/ry)(Fdy)1/2/3160]Mpx < /= Mpx(109a)

Subscripts x and y indicate the axis of bending about which a particular
design property applies.
