Masters Theses

Abstract

"This thesis presents a method of designing spiral reinforced, eccentrically loaded, concrete columns on the basis of the 1957 American Association of State Highway Officials specifications.

Equations from AASHO, in conjunction with equations derived in this thesis, are programmed for and solved by the IBM 650 digital computer. The data obtained from the computer is plotted such that, given the normal load and moment on a column, the minimum required area or reinforcing steel may be read directly from the graph.

The derivation or equations, the computer program, and the graphs are included in the thesis"--Introduction, page 1.
