Column Design Powerpoint Presentation
A column is generally referred to a vertical member designed to resist mainly compression. In building construction, columns are usually constructed monolithically with beams to form an integral structural frame. Hence, a column will inevitably, in addition to compression, have to take up bending moment transmitted from beams to which it is connected.
Therefore, unlike beam section, which is designed solely for bending, column section has to be designed for combined action of axial compression, N, and moment, M. In this chapter, the basic assumptions for beam in Chapter 2 will be adopted to derive the design charts for column, and then you will learn how to make use of these design charts to design column sections and then extend this method to design R C walls.
