A method of analysis is developed for calculating the effects of deflection and axial force on the bending moments of structural members having both beam and column loadings. The member is divided into a number of segments and analyzed by a relaxation method directly in terms of the bending moments at each segment. This analysis is applicable to beam-columns of any shape and stiffness, and for any type of loading. A numerical example of an irregularly curved beam-column is included.
