Title: Investigation of the Ultimate Strength of Square and Rectangular Columns under Biaxially Eccentric Loads
Author(s): L. N. Ramamurthy
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 263-298
Abstract:Two equations are proposed to define approximately the shape of load contours in square and rectangular columns. A method for constructing the interaction diagram for any position of the load is explained. Loads predicted theoretically from such curves are compared with 50 test results. The method is restricted to columns containing eight or more bars evenly distributed among the column faces.
