Title: Ultimate Strength Design Charts For
Columns with Biaxial Bending
Author(s): Donald C. Weber
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1205-1230
Keywords: biaxial bending, column, design, short column, ultimate strength.
Abstract:The problem of combined biaxzial bending and axial compression of short rectangular columns is discussed. A method of approximating the failure surface based on linear interpolation between the capacity for bending on the diagonal and the capacity for bending on a principal axis is proposed. Design charts for columns with equal bending resistance on both principal axes and examples to illustrate their use are included.
