Step 4: Calculation of the buckling loads

Try N16 bars for longitudinal bars and R10 for fitments. Also, the
required cover is taken as 40mm. To allow for creep resulting from
factor, d=0.7

Step 5: Determination of moment magnification factor for the

column
As it is an unbraced column, moment magnifier factor for braced
and unbraced column must be calculated. Moments are in opposite
direction therefore the sign convention must be used.
