Abstract:
By using a nonlinear computer analysis, a parametric study is developed in order to examine the accuracy of the Moment Magnifier Method of the American Concrete Institute Code (ACI 318-83). The variables used in the parametric study are: axial load intensity, P/Po; column reinforcement ratio, rho; slenderness ratio, klu; shape of column cross section, flexural stiffness ratio, and distribution of axial loads. In the parametric study, 216 cases of single bay fixed-base portal frames are examined. The higher moment for each one of these frames at failure are then compared with the design moment predicted by the Moment Magnifier Method of the American Concrete Institute Code (ACI 318-83). The Moment Magnifier Method proved to be very conservative when the columns are subjected to high level of axial loads and when the slenderness ratio is increased.
