Abstract

This paper attempts to give designers an insight into the beam-column problem. The important parameters such as (1) the ultimate strength of columns and beams which are special cases of beam-columns and (2) secondary effects (P- delta and P- DELTA ), that should be considered in the ultimate stength design of beam-columns are identified and discussed. Recommended and proposed ultimate strength design interaction equations in the United States for different categories of beam-columns are then presented. Important features of these equations are summarized.
