Calculator for Moment of Inertia of Channel section

This calculator gives the values of moment of inertia as well as 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. 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.). You can also vist Instructions for Moment of Inertia Calculator
