beam column

beam column

[′bēm ‚käl·əm]
(civil engineering)
A structural member subjected simultaneously to axial load and bending moments produced by lateral forces or eccentricity of the longitudinal load.

Beam column

A structural member that is subjected to axial compression and transverse bending at the same time. A beam column differs from a column only by the presence of the eccentricity of the load application, end moment, or transverse load. Beam columns are found in frame-type structures where the columns are subjected to other than pure concentric axial loads and axial deformations, and where the beams are subjected to axial loads in addition to transverse loads and flexural deformations. See Beam, Column

From design details, it is revealed that the structures were designed with enough bar splices but seismic detailing for beam column joint confinement was missing (Mushtaq et al.

The problem is that many structures collapse during earthquakes due to severe damage to beam column connections.
After solving (25), the critical load of the beam column from Euler formulation in buckling concept can be obtained as follows:
Proportioning of the beam column stiffness plays important role in the failure mechanism, strength and displacement response of RC frames.
The poor design practice of beam column joints is compounded by the high demand imposed by the adjoining flexural members (beams and columns) in the event of mobilizing their inelastic capacities to dissipate seismic energy.
Instead of relying on traditional optical components, Novelx designed stacks of silicon-on-insulator equivalents, including the lens, apertures, and deflectors, to form the infra structure in the electron beam column. This all-electrostatic column, when coupled with a thermal field emission electron source, is optimized for low-voltage imaging and sub-10-nm resolution.
This volume describes fundamentals and two-dimensional beam column problems in order to provide upper-level undergraduates and more advanced readers with an understanding of the in-plane behavior and strength of column stability problems.
To perform the FEA phase of the study, the FE software ANSYS was used to appropriately simulate the nonlinear behaviour of beam column connections.
When the beam-column effect is not considered, the element stiffness matrix [KE.sub.jk] of a beam column element has the usual linear form as
