The compression member AB is made of a steel for which sY 5250 MPa and E 5 200 GPa. It is free at its top A and fixed at itsbase B. Using the interaction method with an allowable bendingstress equal to 120 MPa and knowing that the eccentricities ex andey are equal, determine their largest allowable common value.
