The members which are under the combined effect of axial as well as bending load should satisfy the following equation

Pa/P +Ma /M < 1

Pa total axial load on member, lb (N)
P= total allowable axial load, lb (N)
Ma= total bending moment on member, lb in (Nm)
M =total allowable bending moment, lb in (Nm)
