Steel Compression Member Design in the 1994 Canadian Standard
The 1994 edition of CSA Standard S 16.1-M94, Limit states design of steel structures (CSA 1994) contains explicit methods for computing the compressive resistance of monosymmetric and...

Stability of Lift Slab Structure During Construction Stage
The lift slab structures impose stability problems during the construction phase. The process of constructing this type of structure requires placing the masses of the floor slabs at a...

Moment-Rotation Behavior of Pultruded Beam-to-Column Connections
Presented are experimental details and results of five tests carried out to study the moment-rotation behavior of flange cleated connections for frames of pultruded members. The full-sized...

Progress in Reinforced Concrete Column Design: An Introduction
The Joint ASCE-ACI Committee 441 on Reinforced Concrete Columns is investigating a number of problems related to structural behavior and design of reinforced concrete columns. This paper...

Design of Lateral Steel in Columns
Lateral steel in columns is generally required for shear resistance, confinement of concrete and prevention of buckling of longitudinal bars. This paper is limited to the design of lateral...

Rational Limits for Longitudinal Steel in Concrete Columns
Current limits for the amount of longitudinal reinforcement in concrete columns were established more than 60 years ago. Commercial grades of reinforcement in 1930 were about half as strong...

High-Strength Concrete Columns: State of the Knowledge
This paper consists of reported information divided into two general categories, performance of High-Strength Concrete (HSC) columns under concentric loads, and combined axial and bending...

Recent Advances in Biaxially Loaded Columns

Progress in Reinforced Concrete Column Design
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...

Externally Stiffened I-Beam to Box-Column Connections
This paper is concerned with I-beam to Box-column connections stiffened externally. Experimental and theoretical findings on full-scale connection models are highlighted. The performance...

Load Carrying Capacity of SPC Composite Column
This paper reports the result of beam column test of a new type composite columns. High-strength precast-concrete panels (hereafter denoted as PCa-panels) are fixed to the steel square...

Cyclic Behavior of Joints Between Steel Beams and Reinforced Concrete Columns
The design and behavior of composite beam-column joints for seismic design are reviewed based on the results of tests. Issues addressed include the strength, deformation, and toughness...

ATLSS Connectors in Semi-Rigid Composite Connections

Rigid Beam-To-Column Connection Detail for Circular Composite Columns
Steel pipes with relatively thin wall thickness and filled with high strength concrete have been used in building construction. Some of the advantages of this type of column include eliminating...

Design of Frames Using Notional Horizontal Force
The cantilever columns and portal frames are studied by using the notional horizontal force design concept. This concept intends to eliminate K-factor in the frame design. It was found...

A Shear-Flexure Model for Non-Ductile Reinforced Concrete Bridge Columns under Biaxial Seismic Loading

Seismic Retrofit of R/C Columns with Inadequate Lap Splices
This paper presents experimental results on the use of rectangular steel jackets to improve the seismic performance of rectangular steel jackets to improve the seismic performance of rectangular...

Evaluation of Cast Iron Columns for Safety and Reliability
Cast iron columns exist in numerous vintage buildings. Alterations to these buildings often require analysis and modification of the structural system. This paper identifies codes that...

Column and Beam-Column Design - A World View
This paper is concerned with the design of columns and beam-columns in steel building frames. Design provisions found in some selected codes viz. AS DR87164 87(Australia), BS5950 Part...

Some Aspects of Compression Member Design in Australia
The paper summarizes and elucidates the provisions of the Australian Standard AS4100-1990, Steel Structures, for the design of compression members. Emphasis is placed on those aspects...
