Biaxial bending affects columns where the load is eccentric about both the axes in the plane of the column (eccentric load is a force placed upon a portion of a column which is not symmetric with its central axis, thereby producing bending).
For both rectangular and square columns, there are situations in which axial compression is accompanied by simultaneous bending about both principal axes of the section.
