Calculation Example – Buckling of Column (EC3).

Check the column for buckling according to EC3. HEB300/S275 and axial force NEd=1500KN. The column (L=12m) is pinned at the two far ends (strong axis y-y). The column is pinned every 4m at the weak axis z-z.

Calculation Example – Reinforced Concrete Column at Stress.

A rectangular column (400mmX400mm) is constructed of concrete and four steel reinforcing rebars. An axial force of 1000KN is subjected on the column. What is the diameter of the steel bars if the ¼ of the load is transferred to the steel bars and ¾ is transferred to the concrete? ( EST=200GPa, Ec=25GPa)

Calculation Example – Buckling of Column (EC3).

Check the column for buckling according to EC3. HEB300/S275 and axial force NEd=1000KN. The column (L=15m) is pinned at the two far ends (strong axis y-y). The column is pinned every 5m at the weak axis z-z.
