In this video, we’re going to learn how to calculate the load-carrying capacity of a column. The axial load-carrying capacity of the column formula:

Pu = 0.4fck.Ac + 0.67fy.Asc

as per IS code 456-2000


  • Pu = ultimate axial load carrying capacity of the column.
  • fck = characteristics of the comprehensive strength of concrete.
  • Ac = area of concrete in the column.
  • Asc = area of Steel in the column.
  • Fy = Grade of steel

In simple words, the lower carrying capacity of a column shall always be greater than the actual load carried by the column.

This video is important for those who are interested in designing RCC columns for structural applications. By understanding how to calculate the load-carrying capacity of a column, you’ll be able to make informed decisions about the structural load that the column can handle.
