Angle with Equal Legs

Area moment of inertia - Angle with Equal Legs

The Area Moment of Inertia for an angle with equal legs can be calculated as

Ix = 1/3 [2c4 - 2 (c - t)4 + t (h - 2 c + 1/2 t)3]                       (1a)

where

c = yt cos 45o                             (1b)

and

yt = (h2 + ht + t2) / [2 (2 h - t ) cos 45o]                               (1c)

Angle with Unequal Legs

Area moment of inertia - Angle with Unequal Legs

The Area Moment of Inertia for an angle with unequal legs can be calculated as

Ix = 1/3 [t (h - yd)3 + b yd3 - b1 (yd - t)3]                            (2a)

Iy = 1/3 [t (b - xd)3 + h xd3 - h1 (xd - t)3]                            (2b)

where

xd = (b2 + h1 t) / (2 (b + h1))                                 (2c)

yd = (h2 + b1 t) / (2 (h + b1))

 

Triangle

Area moment of inertia - Triangle

The Area Moment of Inertia for a triangle can be calculated as

Ix =  b h3 / 36                                (3a)

Iy = h b (b2 - ba bc) / 36                         (3b)

Rectangular Triangle

Area moment of inertia - Rectangular Triangle

The Area Moment of Inertia for a rectangular triangle can be calculated as

Ix =  b h3 / 36                                (4a)

Iy =h b3 / 36                              (4b)
