Being g free to move, , the compression p elements would tend to move laterally (the same lateral movement if the beam is subjected to minor axis moment).

However, , the tension flange g and web are reluctant to move, , creating resistance to lateral movement. As such, the crosssection twists when it deflects, with the tension flange and web dragging behind. behind

Introduction
Members subject to combined bending and compression are also l known k as beam-columns. b l Members subject to axial load and moments should be checked for:

Section capacity (Strength) buckling capacity (Buckling-flexural and LTB ) Annex A A Annex B

Two alternative methods included in EC 3

For members subject to combined bending and tension, the effects of tension can be safely ignored in the check for buckling capacity.

Cross-Section Behaviour
