Beam-Columns In an actual structure, a column is seldom subjected to a purely concentric axial load. Because of accidental eccentricity and moments induced by frame action and lateral loads, a column is normally subjected to combined flexure and axial force. For this situation, a member is referred to as a beam-column. The axial load and the bending moments about the x- and y-axes each produce a normal stress on the column se…
