Title: Slenderness and Strength Reliability of Reinforced Concrete Columns
Author(s): S. Ali Mirza and James G. MacGregor
Publication: Structural Journal
Appears on pages(s): 428-438
Keywords: axial loads, columns (supports); eccentricity; reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; slenderness ratio; statistical analysis; strength; tied columns; variability.
Abstract:The variability of the ultimate strength of rectangular cast-in-place reinforced concrete slender columns bent in single curvature was studied, and the effects on this variability of the variations in material strengths and geometric imperfections were determined. The results of this study indicate that the longitudinal steel ratio, the slenderness ratio, and the end eccentricity ratio have a significant influence on the probability distribution properties of the slender column strength.
