by Ganpat S. Pandit, Sr. Prof. and Head; Dept. of Struct. Engrg., Malaviya Regional Engrg. Coll., Jaipur, Rajasthan, India,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1974, Vol. 100, Issue 2, Pg. 499-505

Document Type: Journal Paper


In a 1971 paper by Yokel, he presented an analysis for the ultimate load of eccentrically loaded compression members of rectangular cross section with no tensile strength. This paper extends the range of the analysis and gives general expressions for a load-slenderness ratio relationship for the entire range of eccentricity-depth ratio e/t.
