# Column excentricity

## Column excentricity

(OP)
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.

### RE: Column excentricity

(OP)
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.
