Beam Column Effect – Simcenter 3D vs. Hand Calculations

The beam column effect can have a highly detrimental impact on the strength of members subjected to combined axial and transverse loads. In this post you will learn what the beam column effect is, see a hand calculation to estimate its impact, and finally compare the hand calculation results against Simcenter 3D.
