How does one design a column which has been divided into two (or more) columns in the analysis module (because of connecting beams mid-height in column, or column spanning multiple stories) in the RC design module.
I assume you can take a section and input the real length of the column in the buckling analysis but how does one factor in columns end moments, etc.??
Solved! Go to Solution.
So if I have say a 6m column divided into 2 parts for analysis. In designing the column I will design both parts as separate columns and enter efffective length factor * 6m as the buckling length for each part ?
