Minimum eccentricity for steel simple columns

How would we model minimum exccentricity for a simple beam-column connection.  i.e. 100mm+d/2 to indue some bending into the column following the collection of a simple beam?  

 

Most structural programs that I have used, will have an option to include this during analysis; however, the robot structural module simply calculates the column in pure axial with no bending.  

 

Any ideas?

 

Many Thanks

Use the reduce length offset on the beam. The value of the offset (bending moment) will automatically follow the change in the column size.
