This pap er presents a method to predict the strength of high strength concrete columns subjected to axial compressive load and bending moment in one direction (i.e. Uni-axial bending condition). General non-dimensional equations proposed by applying the least squares approximation and using the experimental data found in previous studies.
The results obtained from the proposed equations; showed good correlation with the tested result of square and rectangular high strength concrete columns. The proposed model is tested and applied on some columns found in previous studies and showed excellent agreement with the experimental data for high strength concrete columns.
