Introduction

General information

With the Concrete Column program columns and walls can be designed or checked according to EN 1992-1-1:2004. Moments around two principal axes (biaxial bending) and axial force can be defined. Diameter and structural strength can be mixed arbitrarily when reinforcement is being defined.
