# V. ACI 318-99 Square Column

Determine the reinforced steel quantity for the square column as per ACI 318-99.

## Reference

Chu-Kia Wang and Charles G.Slamon, Reinforced Concrete Design, 5th Edition, Examples problem 13.21.1, p509 .

## Problem

 Pu = 144 kips

 Muz = 120 ft·kips

 Muy = 54 ft·kips

 f'c = 3,000 psi

 fy = 60,000 psi

## Comparison

Table 1. Comparison of results
Provided steel area per ACI 318-99(in2) 8.0 (8- #9) 9.0 (4- #14) none
Note: In the reference book, the axial capacity provided is 141 kips, which is less than the requirement of 144 kips. In the STAAD implementation of the code, any reinforcement arrangement which yields less capacity than the required value is considered un-acceptable. This is why STAAD reports a higher required steel than the reference book.
