Spirial Column Analysis, Problem In a Formula

  Following advice is needed:-

1) If iam doing anaylses of a Concrete Short Spirial Column which is braced , what value of 'h' i have to use in      M(min)= Pu(0.6 +0.03h) , here h is one side of column , as in case of Sqaure we can take 12inches if it is 12" x 12" but what we have to do if the column is Spirial.

3) if in case of unbraced long spirial columns the vaule of delta as given by ACI Code is less then ONE then what we have to use in thr formula :
   delta = 1 / 1- Pu/0.75Pc should be greater then 1 but if it is less then one then.
