Unformatted text preview: For this part, assume that the column is 24 in. x 24 in., clear story heights are 11 feet, k = 1.2 and r = sqrt (I/A) = 0.3 h. 3. Using tributary area and 1.2 D + 1.6 L design loading, approximate the factored loads (P and M) for column B3 at each story level of the building. State all assumptions and approximations. 4. Determine the size and reinforcement for column B3 at all story levels and verify its strength on axial load-bending moment interaction diagrams using the spreadsheet from part 1 above. 5. Show a view of the column from the foundation to the roof with the longitudinal reinforcement and all lap splices (you can neglect transverse reinforcement). h d 1 d 4 d 3 d 2 b f’c = fy = A s,3 A s,4 A s,1 A s,2...
