Moment of Inertia
Moment of inertia, also called the second moment of area, is the product of area and the square of its moment arm about a reference axis.
 

Moment of inertia about the x-axis:

$\displaystyle I_x = \int y^2 \, dA$

Moment of inertia about the y-axis:

$\displaystyle I_y = \int x^2 \, dA$

 

Polar Moment of Inertia:
Polar moment of inertia is the moment of inertia about about the z-axis.

$J = I_x + I_y$

$\displaystyle J = \int r^2 \, dA$

 

Radius of Gyration

$k = \sqrt{\dfrac{I}{A}}$

$k_x = \sqrt{\dfrac{I_x}{A}}$

$k_y = \sqrt{\dfrac{I_y}{A}}$

$k_z = \sqrt{\dfrac{J}{A}}$

 

Transfer Formula for Moment of Inertia
 

000_transfer_of_moment_of_inertia.gif

 

$I = \bar{I} + Ad^2$

 

Where
$x'$ = centroidal axis
$x$ = any axis parallel to the centroidal axis
$I$ = moment of inertia about the x-axis
$\bar{I}$ = centroidal moment of inertia
$A$ = area of the section
$d$ = distance between x and x’

 

In the same manner, the transfer formula for polar moment of inertia and the radii of gyration are respectively

$J = \bar{J} + Ad^2$

$k^2 = {\bar{k}}^2 + d^2$

 

Product of Inertia

$\displaystyle I_{xy} = \int xy \, dA$
