## Longitudinal bars detailing of a column section

Longitudinal reinforcement is provided in column to carry the applied axial load and bending moment along with concrete. Minimum longitudinal reinforcement It should be at least 0.8 percent of the

## What are the detailing specification for a beam section?

A beam is a structural element that is capable of withstanding load primarily by resisting bending. We design beams by limit state method as per IS 456: 2000. We should

## Earthquake considerations for design of column sections

It is very important to consider the effect of earthquake in proportioning of columns and their reinforcement. The design is based on IS: 13920:1993. This code is applicable to members

## What is creep of concrete ?

Creep of concrete is a kind of deformation which occurs because of sustained loading. It is important to study the creep, because it can have a significant impact on the

## What is Development Length | Calculation as per IS:456

To give you an idea of the significance of development length we will do a simple demonstration. Ask your friend to hold a pen or pencil in closed fist and

## Fundamental concepts of Column

A column is a special case of a compression member that is vertical. A reinforced concrete column is basically a vertical structural member, which helps to transfer the load from

## Difference between Beam and Column

In structural engineering we give names to different structural members based on their behaviour under applied load. Beam and column is also two structural members. Check out this post to

## Stability of slender column -How to improve the same ?

The stability of slender columns refers to their ability to resist buckling, which is a type of lateral instability that occurs when the compressive force exceeds the column’s capacity to

## Minimum and maximum reinforcement in column?

The column is a vertical structure that helps transfer the load from top to bottom in a framed structure. Specifically, columns transfer the compressive load from top floors, ceiling, or beam

## Why do we use minimum eccentricity in column design?

When we design an axially loaded column, it is very important to consider some moments along with the axial load. As in practical scenarios, it is not possible to neglect
