Title: Design Aids for L-Shaped Reinforced
Author(s): Joaquin Marin
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1197-1216
Keywords: axial loads; bending; biaxial loads; columns (supports); computer programs; failure;loads (forces); reinforced concrete; short columns; structural analysis; structural design; ultimate strength method.
Abstract:Numerical investigations of the strength of L-shaped short concrete columns subjected to combined axial load and biaxial bending were undertaken for the purpose of providing design aids for the structural engineer. Three sample design charts are presented, from a group of 50 to be published in 1979. General principles for computing, mapping, and handling interaction failure surfaces for columns of all shapes are summarized.
