Unsymmetric Section

Post  Arpas on Wed Feb 17, 2010 9:59 am

Hi,

I need to model a column which has an unsymmetric reinforcement. Is there a way in Ruaumoko to input a user defined interaction diagram, which has a different shape for positive/negative moments?

Thanks.

Try the General column interaction. Maybe not all that one wants but the nearest at the present time. We have some other models under development, the Brian Peng Plastic hinge element which uses steel and concrete stress-strain and the steel may be different top and bottom leading to an un-symmetric section properties..
