Calculator for Moment of Inertia of Channel section

This calculator uses the standard formulae and parallel axes theorem for moment of inertia of section about x-axis and y-axis. It also calculates the values of maximum and minimum values of section modulus about x-axis and y-axis of channel section. It will help in deciding whether the failure will be on the compression face or on the tension face of the beam. The calculator also gives the values of radius of gyration about x-axis and y-axis of the section. Please enter the "Input Values" in the form given below and click "Calculate". You should enter all the values in same units and this calculator will provide the "Output Results" in the corresponding units (unit2 , unit3 , unit4 etc.).
