Title: E702.2-07: Interaction Diagrams for Concrete Columns
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 14
Abstract:ACI Committee E702, “Designing Concrete Structures Committee,” is part of the ACI Educational Committee structure. Their mission is to develop educational programs and instructional materials within the area of design. The committee has developed various design examples to illustrate the use of various ACI documents. These examples provide step-by-step calculations with references to applicable code provisions for common member design problems, and may also include calculations for common concrete testing procedures, field data analysis, or evaluations.
This design example, “Interaction Diagrams for Concrete Columns,” works through the procedure to draw an interaction diagram for a 12 x 12 in. non-slender tied (non-spiral) column reinforced with four # 8 bars bending around its x-axis. The example follows the provisions of ACI 318-05, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.
