Tag: LRFD Strength in Bending and Compression Combined Bending and Compression

Design of a structural member for loading that induces both bending and axial compression should take into account not only the primary stresses due to the combined loading but also secondary effects. Commonly called P-delta effects, these result from two sources: (1) Incremental bending moments caused by buckling of the member that create eccentricity of the axial compression load with respect to the neutral axis,
