Area Moment of Inertia for some common Cross Sections

Rectangular Cross Section


Ix = b h3 / 12 where b = width h = height (2)

Circular Cross Section


Ix = r4 / 4 = d4 / 64 where r = radius d = diameter (3)

Cylindrical Cross Section


Ix = (do4 - di4) / 64 where do = cylinder outside diameter di = cylinder inside diameter (4)
