When the stanchions in steel frames were first encased in concrete to protect them from fire, they were still designed for the applied load as if uncased. It was then realized that encasement reduced the effective slenderness of the column, and so increased its buckling load. Empirical methods for calculating the reduced slenderness still survive in some design codes for
