AXIAL COLUMN SHORTENING to EN 1992-1 : 2003

AXIAL COLUMN SHORTENING In tall buildings, columns carry huge loads which effectively compress the column along its axis. This is commonly known as ‘axial shortening’.

The axial column displacements generate significant forces within the structural elements they support, and can also cause failure of surrounding non-structural elements.
