Moment of Inertia of rectangular section Calculator

Moment of inertia of rectangular section calculator

The moment of inertia of a rectangle with respect to an axis passing through its centroid, is given by the following expression: where b is the rectangle width, and specifically its dimension parallel to the axis, and h is the height (more specifically, the dimension perpendicular to the axis)

I(xx) is moment of inertia along XX axis

I(yy) is moment of inertia along YY axis

b is width of the section

d is the depth of the section
