Abstract:
A research report sponsored by the REINFORCED CONCRETE RESEARCH COUNCIL deals with the long tied column as part of a building frame subjected to lateral loads. The series of tests on eight rectangular frames verified the expected behavior of a long column which must resist lateral frame load, and confirmed it as a severe condition in comparison to a column not subject to sidesway.
