Q1: The limit of eccentricity is based upon no tension condition.

A True

B False

ANS:A - True

The eccentricity means a deviation of application of load on a member from the axis of the shaft.

Mainly we will use eccentricity condition in columns, as we know that columns are made up of brittle material, brittle materials are weak in tension and compression. As we applied eccentric load on the column member, it will induce both tension and compression. So there is a chance of failing of column in tension. In order to prevent the column from failing in tension, the eccentricity should be designed on the basis of free tension condition.
