Step 4. Determine the maximum yoke spacings by referring to Table 3-9. First, find the column height in feet in
the first column. Then move right horizontally to the column heading the largest cross-sectional dimension of the
column you are constructing. The center-to-center spacing between the second yoke and the base yoke is the
lowest value in the interval that falls partly in the correct column height line. You can obtain all subsequent yoke
spacing by reading up this column to the top. These are maximum yoke spacings; you can place yokes closer
