Design Data for Column with 16-mmØ Rebar

  • Kar Chun TanEmail author


This chapter compiled tabulated ultimate axial resistance, as well as axial and bending moment resistance (about major axis) under balanced failure for commonly used rectangular columns reinforced by up to 16 numbers of 16-mm-diameter rebar in all possible configurations. The column sizes ranged from 150 to 600 mm width with depth-to-width ratio from 1:1 to 4:1. For a compression member, concrete strength plays essential role. Therefore, the design data is tabulated based on concrete grade: C30/37, C40/50 and C50/60 to provide flexibility for designer. Ultimate axial resistance will aid the engineer to decide the size and reinforcement of an axially loaded column, whereas the axial and bending moment resistance under balanced failure provide insight in column capacity when it is subjected to bending moment.
