Assessment of slenderness

Consider a 1.0 m vertical strip of wall acting as an isolated column. The effective height of a column I = Bl ,

Zcol = actual height of the column between centres of restraint

0 is a factor depending upon the coefficients kA and kB relating to the rigidity of restraint at the column ends.

Assuming a constant modulus of elasticity for the concrete: 1 x 0.23

0 0
