Please, clarify the situation. Pylons in a monolithic reinforced concrete frame building can be set by using shells or bars (columns). For example a pylon 1500x200mm. If I set it by the shell elements, strength limited only by the maximum percentage of reinforcement. But if I assume it as a column, it can’t be used due to the concrete strip between oblique sections. Then I have to check "manually" each pylon (resulting the loads from the fragment to the efforts within the column). It is very complicated. Is there any way to simplify the problem?
