The slender column design procedures in the current Australian Concrete Code, AS1480-1974, are found to be quite conservative when compared with those of the ACI and other national codes. Various factors are also found to be ignored or inadequately treated in AS1480. It is suggested that the additional eccentricity approach to slender column design be seriously considered for inclusion in any future revision of AS1480. /Author/TRRL/
