Paper Title:
Application of Value Engineering to the Ductility Design of RC Frame Columns with High Compression Ratio
  Abstract

This paper expatiates the prominent effect of axial compression ratios on the ductility of reinforced concrete frame columns and the limits of the ratios in Code for Seismic Design of Buildings and summarizes the ductility design methods of frame columns with high compression ratios. The principles of value engineering were adopted to analyze the major factors affecting the ductility of reinforced concrete frame columns. The cost of columns with high compression ratios and different types of ties in a real project was calculated and relevant analysis and evaluations were conducted according to Value Coefficient Discriminance. At last the optimum ductility design method for frame columns with high compression ratios was put forth, with which reference can be made in design.
