... SIMULATION In the present study, Monte Carlo simulation is used to generate column strength statistics The basic requirements in Monte Carlo ... model for the column strength In order to compute the column strength, a model to generate the interaction diagram P-M is required. ... The main changes in the original model ( Fafitis and Shah 1985) are related to the computation of the confinement index fi.
