Abstract: Different codes have different recommendations for the design of structural steel flexural members in terms of determining the compactness, slenderness, strength, requirement of stiffeners etc. In this study, the provisions of IS 800-2007, and AISC Steel Construction Manual are compared. Deign is performed for a few rolled and built-up I-sections as per the provisions of these two standards. The root cause for the differences is investigated and presented. Based on this investigation, a set of conclusions are arrived at.
