Column and its different types

Column is basically a vertical structure, which helps to transfer the load from top to bottom in a framed structure. Specifically columns transfer the compressive load from top floors, ceiling

How are column ties different from beam stirrups?

Even though both appear to be same physically the difference lies in their intended function. Ties The term tie is used to define the transverse reinforcement provided in column where

What is the difference between a beam and a column?

Beam and Column In structural engineering we give names to different structural members based on their behavior under applied load. For example: Say you have a rod of length 3
