COMPLETE BIAXIAL LOAD-DEFORMATION BEHAVIOR OF RC COLUMNS

This is a study which attempts to obtain both the ascending and descending branches of the moment-curvature and load-deflection curves for biaxially loaded reinforced concrete columns, as the applied load is increased monotonically from zero load until failure. The numerical analysis is compared with the experimental load-deformation results of both short and slender columns with pinned-ended conditions. The method developed here can be used for any end conditions and variable section geometries such as circular and rectangular, cellular, oval, channel and T-sections.
