This DESIGN AIDS BOOKLET was prepared as a supplement to the LECTURE NOTES on PLASTIC DESIGN OF MULTI-STORY FRAMES. It contains tables and charts for use in the analysis and design of building columns. The information contained in the booklet has been used in the development of the design methods presented in Lecture 11 and 18 and in performing the deigns for the three example frames given in Lectures 12, 14, 16 and 19. The development and preparation of the tables and charts are briefly described in the various parts. Examples are included to illustrate the applications to the solution of column problems.
