Flow Chart: Design of composite columns


This flow chart presents the simple substitutive column approach using the non-dimensional
member slenderness and an appropriate reduction curve to be applied to the cross sectional
resistance to axial compression taking account of the additional items to be considered for
steel-concrete composite members.
