Compmem analyzes rectangular, T- or flanged-shaped compression members (columns or walls) subjected to known axial forces and moments. Sections may be either prestressed or mildly reinforced.
Behavior under service loads and/or design (ultimate) strength are checked for compliance with ACI-318 (2005, 2002 or 1999). Using user-entered values for Cm, β1 and M1/M2, the proper moment magnification factor for columns is calculated based on the non-sway frame equations of Sec. 10.12. The slenderness ratio (kL/r) must be less than or equal to 100.
Both design and service interaction curve values will be generated upon request.
