Abstract: This paper presents an analytical model to determine the compressive response of concrete members, having a square

transverse cross section and reinforced with steel angles at the corners and steel strips connecting the steel angles. The model evaluates

the effects of transverse strips and steel angles on confinement pressures, including strength and buckling phenomena. Compressive

response was evaluated in cases of directly and indirectly loaded elements. The data produced correlate well with available experimental

data.
