The paper presents a comparison of methods of determining the buckling length of reinforced concrete columns in non-sway frames. The comparison was made on the basis of guidelines issued by Poland some EU countries, USA and India. Differences in approaches and values of buckling length coefficients of columns calculated according to these guidelines are shown. An example of the calculation of column buckling length coefficients on selected multi-span, multi-storey non-sway frames is given.
Concrete structures, buckling length, non-sway frames.
