Detailing of Columns to Eurocode 2

It is important to carry out proper detailing after design of reinforced concrete columns. The requirements for column detailing is outlined in...

Modelling and Analysis of Imperfections in Portal Frames

Equivalent horizontal forces (EHF) are not strictly actions, but are forces that are applied to a frame in combination with other actions...

Procedures in Setting out of Reinforced Concrete Columns

Columns are critical structural elements used in transmitting superstructure load to the substructure. As a result, their stability and structural resistance is...

Structural Design of Encased Steel Columns

Composite sections of concrete and steel have a lot of advantages especially in the structural performance and fire resistance of a building....

Flexural Buckling of Columns

When structural members are subjected to compressive forces, the members may fail before the compressive resistance (A.fy) is reached. This premature failure is usually...

Design of Axially Loaded Timber Columns to EC5

Eurocode 5 deals with the limit state design of timber structures. In this post, we are going to present an example on how we...

Concealing of PVC pipes in RC Columns

In modern building construction, PVC pipes (plumbing works) on the surface of buildings is not always very desirable. In a country like Nigeria, PVC...

Structural Design of Steel Fin Plate Connection

1.0 Introduction The fin plate connection is very popular in the construction industry due to its ease of erection, and the absence of shared bolts...

Thickness Design of Column Base Plate Using Prokon Software

Last year, I made a submission here on how to carry out the thickness design of column base plates. See post below; Thickness Design of Column...

How to Analyse Sub-frames For Column Design Moment

In our last post, I highlighted the different methods of loading sub-frames such as to obtain the maximum design moment on the columns (Follow...

How to Load R.C. Columns in a Building for Maximum Design Moment

Earlier this year, I made a submission on how to calculate column axial loads by considering beam support reactions. Just in case you missed...

Analysis of Column Loads in a Building By Considering Beam Support Reactions

Introduction In the manual design of reinforced concrete structures, column loads are usually assessed by considering the support reactions from beams they are supporting, or...
