Hello everyone, I am simulating a RCC Column subjected to axial load at top and lateral displacement at some distance from top. Now i am wondering what kind of behaviour will be exhibited on a column having load of 4 stories above it? Should i consider it as pressure load or axial load on face. I am getting different results with both the cases and hence I am a little confused.
Here's a picture for reference along with graph.January 26, 2021 at 12:52 ampeteroznewmanSubscribernAn important difference between pressure and force is that pressure is always normal to the face it is applied to, while force always maintains the same direction.nThis means that as the displacement pushes the top of the column sideways, the top rotates a little, and that small angle rotates the net force of the pressure, so there is now a horizontal component and a reduced vertical component of force from the pressure. The force load remains vertical at the constant value.nViewing 1 reply thread
