Figure 5.6. Two different ways of defining the basic 10%-criterion for ignoring second order effects, see text above. (The interaction diagram was calculated for rectangular cross section 400 x 600 mm, concrete C35, w = 0,1 (total mechanical reinforcement ratio), edge distance of reinforcement 60 mm.)

C5.8.3.1 Slenderness limit for isolated members General

The load bearing capacity of a member in compression for low slenderness ratios is illustrated in figure 3-1 by means of interaction curves, calculated according to the general method in 5.8.6.

(See chapter 6 in this report for more details about interaction curves and the general method.)

By combining figures 5.7 and 5.6, one can find the slenderness ratios for which the basic 10%-criterion is fulfilled; see figure 5.8.
