Title: Behavior of Concrete Columns Reinforced with High Strength Steels
Author(s): Claudio E. Todeschini, Albert C. Bianchini and Clyde E. Kesler
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 701-716
Abstract:The use of high strength steels in reinforced concrete columns was investigated by conducting parallel theoretical and experimental studies. The results of the experimental work are given and the behavior of the specimens under oad described. A brief outline of the theoretical analysis is presented together with a list of the assumptions made. Discussion of the results and comparison between theoretical and experimental values are made with special empahsis on the effect of eccentricity of loading, concrete strength and percentage of reinforcement. The fuller utilization of the strength capacity of the high strength steels is discussed in the light of the conclusions drawn from the investigation and a comparison is made with the requirements of the current Building Code (ACI 318-63).
