RE: Design of RCC Columns for Tension & Bending as per British codes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have designed using ACI in similar designs. As in a lot of engineering, I had to go to first principles. I do not think that it will be covered per se in the British codes either.

I would advise that you calculate the direct tension and add it to the bending tension in the rebar, and design accordingly. I would also advise using mechanical couplers with staggered elevations of the mechanical couplers.

Can anyone help in locating charts/ tables et al in BS codes/ Publications
etc for designing of RCC columns subjected to  Tension + Bending. I was
unable to locate any such info in BS 8110.
