Design and Detailing of Reinforced Concrete Columns

This webinar presents the design and detailing requirements for reinforced concrete columns in accordance with the provisions in ACI 318-14, and is based on the CRSI publication Design Guide for Reinforced Concrete Columns. Included are numerous design aids, design procedures, and recommendations that make the design and detailing process faster and easier for columns in buildings assigned to Seismic Design Category A through F. The following are covered in the webinar:

  • Methods to quickly determine preliminary column sizes, including guidelines to achieve overall economy in low-, mid-, and high-rise buildings
  • A procedure to determine preliminary joint sizes in special moment frames
  • Comprehensive methods to determine required longitudinal and transverse reinforcement for columns subjected to axial forces and axial forces and bending moments
  • Guidelines and recommendations for simpler detailing

Completely worked-out examples that illustrate proper application of the Code requirements are also presented, which demonstrate the use of the numerous design aids that are in the appendices of the Design Guide.
