Simple Design of Multibar Concrete Columns

Reinforced concrete columns are now often designed by computer, but design charts are still a popular alternative. Many sets of charts have been published for different Codes of Practice over the years, by various authors, but most of those for rectangular columns (e.g. BS81lO:Part 3' and the IStructE manualĀ²) cover only columns that are reinforced with four bars placed near their corners.
