Table 2 Comparison of the section forces and moments in the cross section shown in Fig. 2-C. The forces and the moments were given in the local coordinate system located at the centroid of the cross section. Fx, Fy, Fz were the components of the Force; Mx, My, Mz were the components of the Moment. Fres and Mres were the resulting of the force and of the moment respectively
