IN present day structural design we are very often faced with the problem of a strut of some particular constant cross section with partially fixed or free pin‐jointed end conditions and in which the line of action of the applied load does not coincide with the neutral axis of the strut. Indeed, it is unlikely that such coincidence is ever achieved, both on account of production errors and initial crookedness.
