DISCUSSION AND INTERPRETATION OF THE AXIAL LOAD-BENDING MOMENT INTERACTION DIAGRAMS
DISCUSSION AND INTERPRETATION OF THE AXIAL LOAD-BENDING MOMENT INTERACTION DIAGRAMSCalculations presented in the preceding section demonstrate that values of Pn and Mn for a given reinforced masonry column with a given set of strain conditions (ultimate compressive strain in masonry and yield strain in steel reinforcement) can be easily determined. However, hand calculations for a complete interaction diagram for columns are quite tedious as is evident from preceding calculations for just one column. Therefore, it is common practice to resort to computer programs to generate interaction diagrams for columns of various si…
