The customary type of reinforced concrete column is not too satisfactory for large loads. An improvement is proposed by means of which columns may be made smaller and more economical. At the same time, their size may be kept the same throughout a tall building, 20 in. being considered the optimum size for all col- umns carrying up to l,OOO,OOO lb. This results in stand- ardization of design, detailing and erection of floor construction on various levels. To accomplish that it is proposed to use eight bars in each column, the maximum size of bars being 2 in. round and their yield point stress 75,000 psi.
