Columns With Eccentric Load: L.C.C. Code of Practice

THE most readily understood method of dealing with eccentric load (or, which is much the same thing, with bending moment) is that of the Equivalent Axial Load. By this method one takes the total actual load on the column and adds to it an amount to correspond with the bending moment. The sum is called the “total equivalent axial load,” and the column is designed upon it, without further reference to the bending moment. A.B. Dailey
