eccentric load

eccentric load

[ek¦sen·trik ′lōd]
(engineering)
A load imposed on a structural member at some point other than the centroid of the section.

eccentric load

A load on a column or pile which is nonsymmetric with respect to the central axis, therefore producing a bending moment.

(2) The most common occasion for an eccentric load to the proximal hamstrings is during soccer, sprinting, football, and dance.
The eccentric load of the lower body is established by the increase in kinetic energy produced during the downward arm swing, which creates more power (14).
The generated eccentric load and overturning moment would affect the normal operation of the bearing.
The behaviour of a column with different cross section subjected to eccentric load has been studied such as circular tubular column [4], elliptical hollow column [5], square and rectangular hollow columns [6], and the battened column composed of L-profiles under uniaxial and biaxial loads [7].
Subsequently, virtual evaluation of durability was made in the monitored points for whole variants--centric and eccentric load 100, 75 and 50%.
Effects of different accentuated eccentric load levels in eccentric-concentric actions on acute neuromuscular, maximal force, and power responses.
In low gear, it creates a huge eccentric load that locks the wheel into place so it will only move forward.
The eccentric load on the motor produced a sinusoidal load profile, where the motor regenerated for half the cycle and motored for the other half.
The test setup shown in Figure 1 did not eliminate the moment due to the offset of applied load and subsequent eccentric load. This resulted in somewhat lower apparent shear strength; see the values in parentheses in Table 2.
Tapered columns and arms compensate for eccentric load column deflection even when fully loaded.
Under eccentric load, the shallow hinge joint was primarily under shear stress; tensile stress at the bottom was small.
In service, the combination of these factors under loading condition (the single lap joint configuration causes secondary bending to occur under tensile loading due to the eccentric load path inherent in the joint geometry, concentration of peel and shear stresses in the adhesive layer due to singular points, etc.) and the environmental effect (temperature, time, etc.) tends to reduce significantly the lifetime of these components.
