Software Module for Design of Rectangular and Non-Rectangular RCC Columns

Introduction
• Columns are most important members of Reinforced Concrete

Structures having different cross sectional shapes.
• They are classified on the basis of their length, lateral

dimensions, support condition and nature of loading.
