Title: Ductility of Reinforced Concrete Column Sections in Seismic Design
Author(s): Robert Park and Richard A. Sampson
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 543-555
Keywords: Columns (supports), deformation, earthquake
resistant structures, limit design theory, re-
inforced concrete, structural design
Abstract:Ductility required of eccentrically loaded reinforced concrete column sections in seismic design is subject; method for determination of amount of special trans- verse steel required for ductility suggested, based on theoretical study using stress-strain curves for concrete confined by retangular hoops and for steel including strain hardening.
