Abstract: Information on the ductility of high strength columns in seismic areas has been scarce. The available information is based mainly on small test columns subjected to monotonic concentric axial load only. This investigation develops design and detailing criteria for transverse reinforcement in high strength (compressive strength exceeding 15,000 psi) rectangular reinforced concrete columns for seismic resistant structures.
