Edge column

The intention of this calculation is to show a typical hand calculation.

A 300 mm square column on the edge of a flat slab structure supports an axial load of 1620 kN and first order moments of 38.5 kNm top and -38.5 kNm bottom in one direction only. Using /ck = 30 MPa and cnom = 25 mm. The 250 mm thick flat slabs are at 4000 mm vertical centres.
