Part of: Structures Congress XII


This paper reviews some of the design procedures used for both braced and unbraced frames constructed in reinforced concrete. The discussion refers to the problems of material and geometric non-linearity for both individual members and for complete systems. The need for rationally chosen values of member stiffness for both short time and long time loading is noted and values for design are suggested. Definition of no sway (braced) and sway (unbraced) systems are provided. Design procedures for reinforced concrete column design are presented.
