I beam moment of inertia calculator for calculation of second moment of area (moment of inertia) of I beam, section modulus, radius of gyration, cross section area and centroid.
I beam is a type of beam
often used in trusses in buildings. I beam is generally manufactured from
structural steels with hot and cold rolling or welding processes. Top and bottom plates of a I beam are named as flanges and the vertical plate which connects the flanges is named as web. Different dimensions of I beam exist in the market and can be supplied by the beam suppliers. Due to its shape, I beam has high moment of inertia and stiffness which makes it resistant to bending moments. The web provides resistance against shear forces. These beams are not resistant to torsional loading (twisting) and they shall not used in the cases where torsion is dominant.
