A simplified ultimate strength method of design for columns subjected to bending about both principal axes is presented. A set of nondimensional design curves for one particular section geometry is given for commonly encoun-tered values of steel percentage, concrete strength, and steel yield stress. The use of these curves is demonstrated by several design examples.
