Abstract:
Studies rectangular columns loaded axially with bending moments about both principal axes. A theoretical contour line of the interaction surface for a particular column was calculated and compared with the contour line obtained experimentally. Tests of nine columns are reported with the theoretical results proving to be a good indication of column strengths. A method is suggested that may result in a satisfactory approximation to any interaction surface.
