The Effects of Load History and Design Variables on Performance Limit States of Circular Bridge Columns- Volume 1

This report is the first of three volumes and presents interpretation of all experimental and numerical data and recommendations. In total, 30 large scale reinforced concrete columns tests were conducted under a variety of loading conditions. Using advanced instrumentation methods, strain levels for multiple performance limit states were established, including reinforcing bar buckling. A new model for plastic hinge lengths has been proposed as well.
