Moments of Inertia

by Velasquez Juan


Submitted : Fall 2010

In structures beams are always used and in order to calculate their bending resistance we calculate the moment of Inertia. The moment of Inertia uses integration to add all the different reistances along the cross section. In this Project I calculated the  moment of inertia of different shapes and compare them to see how the cross section shape affects the bending resistance.
