concrete varies under load and time, but ultimate failure is more predictable. For design, failure is defined as the spalling of the cover concrete. Even with the cover cracked the column will continue to carry load. Spiral columns are tougher than tied A column is a more critical member. It supports a greater area. Therefore the Фfactor is lower.
