Circular Column Design

Circular reinforced columns have higher strength than square or rectangular columns. Circular cross-section columns are more resistant to buckling as compared to a rectangular cross-section. Furthermore, circular sections will have uniform torsion characteristics.

The difference between the strength of two different types of columns: Columns having shear reinforcement in form of spirals gives better confinement than shear reinforcement in form of ties.

They are columns in which the longitudinal bars are arranged in a circle surrounded by a closely spaced continuous spiral. These columns are usually circular or square in shape. A minimum of six bars is used for longitudinal reinforcement.
