Column excentricity

Hey guys i have the following column with the different excentricities and forces. My problem is i don't know how to calculate the moment capacity of a column like this situation. Do anyone have a suggestion regarding how to calculate such a column? Thanks in advance.

RE: Column excentricity

Do a vector sum of the loads and their individual moments in each direction. You should end up with a single load and a single eccentricity.

Plan accordingly for pattern loading, i.e. one of the loads happening when the other doesn't.

RE: Column excentricity

Can you give me an example of how to do that?

RE: Column excentricity

If you are qualified to perform that calculation you shouldn't need an example. It's first year statics.
