Moments and Products of Inertia and the Inertia Matrix

Moments of Inertia

o Consider the rigid body B. The unit vectors ( )

1 2 3

: , , B e e e are fixed in the body and

directed along a convenient set of axes passing through the mass center G.

o The moments of inertia of the body about these

axes are defined as

/ P G

r the position vector of P with

respect to G, that is,

/ 1 2 3 P G

r xe ye ze = + + .

o Moments of inertia of a body about a particular axis are a measure of the distribution

of the bodys mass about that axis. The smaller the inertia the more the mass is

concentrated about the axis.

o Inertia values can be found either by measurement or calculation. Calculations are

based on direct integration or on the body build-up technique. In the body build-up

technique, inertias of simple shapes are added (or subtracted) to estimate the inertia of a

composite shape.

o The inertias of simple shapes (about their individual mass centers) are found in

standard inertia tables. These values are transferred to axes through the composite

mass center using the Parallel Axes Theorem for Moments of Inertia.

o Moments of inertia are always positive. From the parallel axes theorem, it is obvious

that the minimum moments of inertia of a body occur about axes that pass through its

mass center.

o Products of inertia of a body are measures of symmetry.

o If a particular plane is a plane of symmetry, then the

products of inertia associated with any axis

perpendicular to that plane are zero.

o For example, consider a thin laminate. The mid-plane

of the laminate lies in the XY-plane so that half its

thickness is above the plane and half is below. Hence,

the XY-plane is a plane of symmetry and

o Bodies of revolution have two planes of symmetry. For

the configuration shown, the XZ and YZ planes are

planes of symmetry. Hence, all products of inertia are

zero about the X, Y, and Z axes.

o Products of inertia are found either by measurement or calculation. Calculations are

based on direct integration or on the body build-up technique. In the body build-up

technique, products of inertia of simple shapes are added (or subtracted) to estimate the

products of inertia of a composite shape.

o The products of inertia of simple shapes (about their individual mass centers) are found

in standard inertia tables. These values are transferred to axes through the composite

mass center using the Parallel Axes Theorem for Products of I nertia.

o Products of inertia can be positive, negative, or zero.

The Inertia Matrix

o The inertias of a body about a set of axes (passing through some point) are often

collected into a single inertia matrix. For example, the inertia matrix of a body about a

set of axes through its mass center G is defined as

o There is a different inertia matrix for each set of axes passing through a given point.

o There is one set of directions for each point that renders the inertia matrix diagonal.

These directions are called principal directions (or principal axes) of the body for that

point. In general, the principal axes are different for each point in a body.

o All inertia matrices are symmetric.
