Calculator for Moment of Inertia of H or I section

This calculator uses standard formulae and paralle axes theorem to calculate the values of moment of inertia about x-axis and y-axis of I or H section. It also determines the maximum and minimum values of section modulus and radius of gyration about x-axis and y-axis of the section. It will help in deciding whether the failure will be on the compression face or on the tension face of the beam.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.).
