Abstract:
The results obtained from tests conducted on high-strength concrete columns are reported. The experimental program comprised ten axially loaded short columns and six slender columns subjected to axial compression and bending moment. The main test parameters in the case of short columns are the area and the type of lateral reinforcement, whereas the eccentricity of the axial thrust is the major variable in the slender column tests. The paper also includes methods of calculating the strengths of reinforced concrete columns made of high-strength concrete. The calculated strengths agree closely with the test values.
