Slender Columns in High Strength Concrete and normal Strength Concrete: BS 8110 and EC 2 Compared

Eighteen large-scale reinforced concrete columns, with concrete compressive strength (fcu) of 55.24N/mm² or 76.15N/mm², were tested under short-term loading. The effective-length-to-depth ratios Le/h) of the columns are 26.2,28.7 or 30.4, load-eccentricity-to-depth ratio (e/h) is 0.25 or 0.50, and steel ratio (p) is 3.35% or 5.24%. The experimental behaviour of the columns is presented and discussed. P.H. Chuang, S.K. Kong and Emeritus Professor F. K. Kong
