# Slender Columns

## Monday, November 26, 2012

Definition
P

Slender columns are those subject to buckling that produces additional moment resulting in significant reduction of column capacity.

If the column is unbraced, i.e. both ends can move relative to each other, then the additional moment is greater.

## Braced and Unbraced Structures

When the structure contains members to resist side-sway (lateral forces) then it is a braced structure.

## Braced and Unbraced Structures

When the structure does not contain members to resist side-sway (lateral forces) then it is an unbraced structure.

## Braced and Unbraced Structures

According to ECP 203 Bracing of RC structures is usually provided by shear walls or cores. A building without shear walls or cores is considered an unbraced structures. A building with a shear wall or a core is considered braced only if

Slenderness Ratio;
Is the ratio between the effective length of the column and its cross sectional dimensions in the direction under consideration.
