The magnified sway moments are added to the unmagnified nonsway moments M ns
at each end of the column:
M 1 = M 1ns s M 1s
M 2 = M 2ns s M 2s
The nonsway moments and the sway moments M s are computed using a first-order
elastic analysis

Biaxial Bending of Column


Biaxial bending of columns occurs when the loading causes bending simultaneously about
both principal axes.

Biaxial Interaction Strength


A uniaxial interaction diagram defines the load-moment strength along a single plane of a
section under an axial load P and a uniaxial moment M. The biaxial bending resistance of an
axially loaded column can be represented schematically as a surface formed by a series of
uniaxial interaction curves drawn radially from P axis.

A. Bresler Reciprocal Load Method


This method approximate the ordinate 1/Pn on the surface S 2 (1/P n , ex, ey) by a corresponding
ordinate 1/P'n on the plane S'2 ehich is defined by the characteristic points A, B and C, as
indicated :

page 56

The general expression for axial load strength for any values of ex and ey is as follows:

Rearranging variables yields:

Pn =

Pox = Maximum uniaxial load strength of the column with a moment of M nx=Pn .ey
Poy = Maximum uniaxial load strength of the column with a moment of M ny=Pn .ex
Po = maximum axial load strength with no applied moments
B. Bresler Load Contour Method
In this method, the surface S 3 (Pn , Mnx, Mny) is aproximated by a family of curves corresponding
to constant values of P n . These curves may be regarded as "load contours"

on error

page 57

Mathcad in Column Design.xmcd

prepared by Djoni Simanta

The general expression for these curves can be approximated by a nondimensional interaction
equation of the form:

Mnx
Mny
M M = 1.0
nox
noy
when M nx and Mny are the nominal biaxial moment strength in the direction of the x and y axes,
respectively. The moment M nox is the nominal uniaxial moment strength about the x-axis, and
Mnoy is the nominal uniaxial moment strength about the y-axis.
The values of the exponents and are a function of the amount, distribution and location of
reinforcement, the dimensions of the columns, and the strength and elastic properties of the steel
and concrete.
Bresler indicates that it is reasonably accurate to assume that =

Mnx
Mny
M M = 1.0
nox
noy

Bresler indicated that, typically, varied from 1.15 to 1.55, which a value 1.5 being resonably
accurate for most square and rectangular sections having uniformly distributed reinforcement.
With set at unity, the interaction equation becomes linear:

Mnx Mny
M M = 1.0
nox noy
This equation as shown in figure above, would always yield conservative results since it
underestimates the column capacity, especially for high axial loads or low percentages of
reinforcement.

It should only be used when

C. PCA Load Contour Method


The PCA approach described below was developed as an extension of the the Bresler Load
Contour Method.

A typical Bresler Load Contour for a certain P n is shown above. In the PCA Method, point B
is defined such that the nominal biaxial moment strengths M nx and Mny at this point are the
same ratio as the uniaxial moment strengths M nox and Mnoy. Therefore, at point B
