- When the upper column does not provide full bearing area over lower column, the column splice is provided with the following assumption
- The equivalent axial tensile load Pe, which produces an average axial tensile stress in the section equivalent to the combined stress due to axial tension P and bending M, at the extreme fibre of the section, is given by (where Z is the section modulus of the section).
- If the depth of the section of an upper column is smaller than the lower column
- Battening is preferable when the (i) Column carries axial load only (ii) Space between the two main components is not very large (iii) Column is eccentrically loaded The correct answer is
- For the economical design of a combined footing to support two equal column loads, the projections of beams in lower tier are kept such that bending moment under column is equal to
- If the depth of two column sections is equal, then the column splice is provided
- To keep the intensity of bearing pressure between the column base and concrete, compressive throughout the length of the column base, the ratio of the moment M to axial load P should be
- For the economical design of a combined footing to support two equal column loads, the projections of beams in lower tier are kept such that bending moment under column is equal to
- In case of timber structures, the form factor for solid circular cross-section is taken as
- The most economical section for a column, is
