BEHAVIOR OF SLENDER COLUMN SUBJECTED TO ECCENTRIC LOADING
Main Article Content
This paper focuses on Behavior of slender column subjected to eccentric loading. Six slender, reinforced concrete columns with slenderness ratio equals to 15; the compressive strength of the concrete were ranged from 60 to 100 MPa. Slender column were subjected to eccentric axial load with load-eccentricity: depth ratio of 0.15. Three columns were reinforced with six bars having a nominal strength of 415 MPa and other three were reinforced with same number of bars having strength equals to 500 MPa with longitudinal steel ratio equals to 4%. The test results were compared with the values predicted using IS 456-2000. These test, enabled the provision for slender columns in the code to be checked against experimental values, have indicated that IS 456-2000 are very safe and uneconomical design document for HPC slender column.
