CE Calculators > Moment of Inertia Calculator for plane sections (rectangular, circular, pentagon, hexagon, Channel, Angle, T and H sections

Moment of inertia or second moment of area is important for determining the strength of beams and columns of a structural system. Moment of inertia is considered as resistance to bending and torsion of a structure. It is also required to find slope and deflection of beams as well as shear stress and bending stress.
This calculator is developed to help in determination of moment of inertia and other geometrical properties of plane sections of beam and column. This calculator uses standard formulae and the theorem of parallel axes to determine moment of inertia. You can copy and paste the results from these calculators in the document file. You can select from the list of plane sections given below or visit Instructions for Moment of Inertia Calculator for guidelines on using this calculator
