Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am working on a hydraulic cylinder application that will lift some weight that is not aligned with the axis of the cylinder. Take a look at the picture and imagine that instead of ropes there is a hydraulic cylinder fixed to the beam doing the lifting. The load creates moment since it is not aligned with the cylinder. The thing is, hydraulic cylinder catalogs always mention load capacity, which is probably assumed to be aligned load. Since the load create tension, not compression, I think buckling check is not appropriate as well. What would be the criteria in this case?

Thank you for any help.
