Eight design charts are presented for reinforced concrete short C-columns subjected to
axial compressive load plus uniaxial bending. For design these charts can be used for
determining the required column dimensions and amount of steel, while for analysis
these charts can be used for estimating the loaded column capacity.
Four examples are given to explain the use of design charts for both design and
analysis, two of which are design examples while the other two are analysis. It has been
shown by these examples that the new proposed charts are very simple to use in
structural applications.
