    A column is used to support the weight of the roof and/or the upper floors. Now days, many columns are used for decorative purposes. A column along with load bearing beams can support a lot of weight.



    A column is a vertical member made up of concrete and steel used to support the beam and to support the weight of the particular building.

    The word ?column? is related to building construction. The vertical support which is free from all sides taking the load of beam slab etc. and transfers the load to the earth independently is called column.

    Column is constructed with the help of steel bars and cement concrete. In case of multi storey and frame structure building constructions, the entire load is born by columns and the floor area/ internal space of building is freely adjusted according to the requirement.

    The size, cement concrete ratio and numbers of steel bars with their diameter are available in structural drawings which are designed according to the load born by the column and factor of safety.

    it is a vertical member which transfers the load of top floors directly to the earth surface.
    But care should be taken that the load carrying capacity depends on size of the column and also the distance between the successive columns that is 6m (approximately)

    column is vertical member used primarily to support the axial compressive load and with a height of at least three times its lateral dimension and finally transfer the superimposed load and dead load to the sub soil.

    column is a vertical compression member in the construction of buldings.Beacause these vertical members have different names in strctural engineering for ex.in trusses these are called struct.
    These are mainly used to transfer the loads (dead+live) from structure to the soil bearing
    stratum,and for uniform settlement of structure.

    Column or pillar in architecture and structural engineering is an structural element that transmits, through compression, the weight of the structure above to other structural elements below in, other word column is a compression member. For the purpose of wind or earthquake engineering, columns may be designed to resist lateral forces. Other compression members are often termed "columns" because of the similar stress conditions. Columns are frequently used to support beams or arches on which the upper parts of walls or ceilings rest. In architecture, "column" refers to such a structural element that also has certain proportional and decorative features. A column might also be a decorative element not needed for structural purposes; many columns are "engaged with", that is to say form part of a wall.

    Column is vertical and a compression member in a st6ructure.
    Main Functions:
    1.it will separate two slabs( vertical separation)in a structure.
    2.it will transfer load to footing.
    3.it will avoid load bearing walls thus save space, labor,time ,money.
