Title: Reinforced Concrete Columns Under Combined Compression and Bending
Author(s): Harold E. Wessman
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1-8
Abstract:Algebraic methods available heretofore for the analysis of the reinforced concrete column subject to combined compression and bending have usually rnvolved the solution of a complex cubic equation and . have taken considerable time when applied to particular problems. A new method of successive approximations converging rapidly to an exact an- swer and avoiding the use of the cubic equation is presented in this paper. the reciprocal The key to the method is relationship existing between the load axis and the neutral axis of the transformed section The method may be applied to any shape of cross section and any arrangement of reinforcing steel providing there is one axis of symmetry and the plane of bending coincides with this axis. The theory behind the method is presented and illustrated with three typical problems.
