In the steel structure design code (TJ17-74) in China, a single curve was adopted for designing axially compressive members and the reliability of the column analyzed previously was based on this curve. However the present international tendency is to use multiple column curves and it is more reasonable in design than using a single curve. We had computed 93 curves by use of maximum strength theory. This paper analyzed the reliability of column based on these curves.
