Moments of Inertia of Areas

Civil Engineering

Reading time: 1 minute

First moment
Forces are distributed continuously over an area on which they act, it is often necessary to calculate the moment of theses forces about an axis

Second moment

    • The intensity of the force (pressure or stress) is proportional to the distance of the line of action of the force from the moment axis
    • Also called Area moment of inertia
