The development of column strength formulas for unsymmetrically reinforced sections has been developed in previous papers. However, aids such as interaction diagrams have not been available of the designers use because of the complexity of these formulas, the additional variables and the assumptions required. This paper presents a formulation for rectangular column strengths and also presents interaction diagrams. An example is solved to demonstrate the efficiency of this method.
