oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Design consequences of variation in the effective lengths of slender columns in unbraced reinforced concrete frames

Volume 24, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



It was illustrated in a recent study that a variation in the effective-length value for columns in unbraced steel frames can be responsible for a considerable difference in the design of such columns. It was also shown that such variation in effective length can easily occur when comparing results of effective-length cherts with solutions obtained from a rigorous elastic buckling analysis of the entire framework.
