Design of SWT columns
Here you will find capacity curves for our circular and square composite columns.
These curves consider the columns as loaded with a vertical normal force. Additional moments coming from eccentric loads or impact loads from vehicles are normallt not an issue, but please contact us for a consultancy in case the load is larger than a normal parking garage. You are of course always welcome to contact us for any further help in case of complex cases or if you just want to discuss an idea.
Notes about the graphs
1. The height of the column is measures as the free height, from floor to underside of beam/slab.
2. The smaller dimensions are not available up to R120, see the notes in the curves.
3. Columns are generally made as floor-high, although 2-floor columns are possible for special cases. Please contact us for more info if this is needed.
