Tag: ASD for Compression and Bending Combined Axial Compression and Bending

A member carrying both axial and bending forces is subjected to secondary bending moments resulting from the axial force and the displacement of the neutral axis. This effect is referred to as the P- effect. Such secondary bending moments are more critical in members where the axial force is a compressive force, because the P- secondary moment increases the deflection of the member. In ASD,
