    Welcome to PF, Su.
    It might just be due to my lack of formal education, but your question makes no sense to me. Can you be more specific as to what you want to know?

    how about replacing the eccentric moment with a force & moment at the axis of shaft.

    Thanks for your replies

    It's just because i am not an English speaker, lol.

    I think present it in a picture will be more effective.
    It is attached as attachment below.

    can u describe more on how to get that "force"??

    Thanks for your help.
