A steel column was installed out of plumb (1-1/2" in 8'-6"). I know this is out of the L/500 allowable. Does anyone see a problem with analyzing the column as is (in other words checking the increased load due to the angle, shear through the connections at the top and bottom of the column and additional load through floor diaghram above). Is there any code or standard shooting this method down?
