Title: Analysis and Design of Square and Rectangular Columns by Equation of Failure Surface
Author(s): Cheng-Tzu Thomas Hsu
Publication: Structural Journal
Appears on pages(s): 167-179
Keywords: axial loads; bending; biaxial loads; columns (supports); failure mechanisms; reinforced concrete; short columns; structural analysis; structural design; tied columns; Structural Research
Abstract:A general analysis and design equation of reinforced concrete short and tied columns is proposed. This equation of failure surface represents both the strength interaction diagrams and failure surface of reinforced concrete sections under combined biaxial bending and axial load. Twelve analysis and design examples of columns under combined bending/biaxial bending and axial load are illustrated herein to provide an alternative analysis, review, and design of reinforced concrete columns under combined bending/biaxial bending and axial loadings.
