A Simple Design Method for Composite Columns

The next British Code of Practice for composite structures in buildings, now in preparation, will not include composite columns. A simplified design method for such columns, originally developed for the draft for public comment of this Code, has been revised to take account of subsequent work and the publication of BS 5400: Part 5. This method and other recommendations on composite columns for buildings are now presented in Code form, with explanations, comparisons with other methods, and a worked example. R.P. Johnson and D.G.E. Smith
