A theoretical justification is presented for the application of the Southwell plot to general monosymmetrical beam-columns. It is shown that, for the particular case of a beam loaded through its shear center, a modified form of the Southwell plot should be used. The validity of this modified form is checked by experiment and by examination of a closed form solution.
