Title: Effect of Column Exposure in Tall Structures-Analysis fo Length Changes of Exposed Columns
Author(s): Fazlur R. Khan and Mark Fintel
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 843-864
Keywords: analysis, columns, combined stresses, design, exposed columns, multistory buildings, partition behavior, reinforced concrete, temperature effects, thermal movement.
Abstract:Develops a generalized method of analysis for multistory frames for length changes of exposed columns. A simplified method is then presented for quick, and relatively accurate, solution. Design curves representing curves are intended to be used for preliminary desing, and in many cases for the final design of the structure. Finally, design stesses, behavior of partitions, and limitations of movement are discussed.
