The element was implemented into a finite element pro- gram PRINS, and consisting of this program can be used for linear analysis of building struc- tures containing the reinforced concrete columnsbuilding structuresreinforced concrete columns of a rectangular cross- sectionfinite element methodsuper-elementsстроительные конструкциижелезобетонные колонны пря- моугольного сеченияметод конечных элементов
