Abstract

This paper proposes a method modified from that as first suggested by Siao1 to determine the effect on column strength taking into consideration the effect of confinement by the surrounding slab. Previous test results2-4 obtained by others (37 test specimens in total) have been used to justify the proposed method. Results show reasonable agreement between actual and predicted values.
