Abstract:
Reinforced concrete (RC) short columns subjected to combined axial compression and biaxial bending are frequently encountered in RC structures such as buildings and bridges. Generally, the determination of the ultimate strength for RC columns of generic cross sections under eccentric compressive loading is rather tedious and time consuming. Various design aides have been developed mainly for rectangular and circular columns. Occasionally, the architectural considerations also require columns of nonconventional cross sections such as hollow sections and polygons. Therefore, additional analysis capabilities should be available to evaluate various design options conveniently.
