Eccentrically-Loaded Steel Columns

THE method of calculation commonly adopted among steel work designers in allowing for eccentricity of loading in the design of steel columns is to find thc equivalent central load by means of the ecccntricity coeficients which are usually tabulated in the various manufacturers' handbooks, and to design, the column or stanchion for this equivalent central load from the particular column formula which they fancy or which municipal authorities specify.
