Carl Berwanger and S. Imtiaz Rasul
Experimental and analytical investigations of fifty-five partially prestressed concrete beam-columns undergoing transverse flexure combined with axial thrust have been conducted. The tests were of short term duration. The variables were the number and the arragement of the prestressing tendons and the total prestressing force.
The investigation deals with the effect of axial load on the moment-curvature relationship of reinforced concrete memebers. Uniaxial loading when combined with transverse flexure generally reduces the ultimate moment and curvature of these members.

A comprehensive but simple design procedure is presented for the design of concrete columns subject to biaxial bending. The procedure is oriented towards hand computation but is suitable for incorporation into computer programs. The methods in the existing literature are summarized and evaluated. A new design procedure and an example problem showing its use are given.

A computer method for the analysis of elastically restrained long reinforced concrete columns subjected to axial load and biaxial bending is described.
Present equations of design of tied reinforced concrete columns do not include for the influence of ties on the value of the ultimate load. . .Theoretical analysis of a segment of a tied concrete column is presented showing the distribution of strains in the concrete, longitudinal steel and ties.
The purpose of this work is to develop a simplified procedure for estimating the effects of tension cracking, nonlinearity of concrete in compression, yielding of the steel, and the effects of secondary bending on the displacements and moments in eccentrically loaded columns bent in single curvature.
S. I. Abdel-Sayed and N.J. Gardner
A design method is described for symmetrically reinforced slender square concrete columns under biaxially eccentric loads. Dimensionless charts are presented giving the relationships between load, eccentricity, and curvature. Comparison of the method with existing results shows good agreement.
P.C. Wang and William Y.W. Liu
A matrix displacement method is presented here to establish the behavior of reinforced concrete columns in flat plate structures.
Peter D. Heimdahl and Albert C. Bianchini
The effect of using high strength reinforcement in square tied columns under uniaxially and biaxially eccentric loads is investigated.
R. Green and J. Hellesland
The effect of repeated loading on the ultimate load capacity, and the deflection and stiffness properties of eight eccentrically loaded reinforced concrete columns was studied experiementally.
