Eccentric effects for compression members

Eccentric end connection effects for angles, channels and Tee sections subjected to axial compression are normally taken into account by calculating the extra eccentric moments and then adding them to the normal design moments along the entire length of the design group (unless they cause a net reduction in the final design moment).


For all codes, the eccentric moments are calculated by multiplying the axial force by the distance from the centroid of the connected plate to the centroid of the cross section.
