When you design a channel do you load it with the actual loading PLUS a torsional load which equals the actual loading multiplied by an eccentricity of the distance from the center of flange to the shear center?
I've designed many channels without considering this and no other engineers checking my work have mentioned it. I just wanted to get some other opinions.
