Different Failure Modes of Concrete Columns – Compression Members

There are three modes of failure of concrete columns (compression members) i.e. failure due to pure compression, combined compression and elastic instability. These modes of failures of concrete compression members are discussed. Reinforced concrete column is a compression member and transfers ...

DESIGN AND DETAILING OF RCC BEAMS

RCC beams structural elements are designed to carry transverse external loads that cause bending moment, shear forces and in some cases torsion across their length. Concrete is strong in compression and very weak in tension. Steel reinforcement is used to ...
