Civil Engineering/Eccentric loading on pile cap.

Well , 1st of all: Why did u get the center of the piles group under the colmn center?

Assuming there is a strong reason to have the eccentricity, there 'll be an applied bending moment on the piles cap, in addition to to the vertical loads.

That 's generally ok, but then the loads in each & every pile must be calculated accurately.
