How to Check Timber Under both Bending and Axial Load?

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)
