Torsional constant of member (in.^4)
Warping constant (in.^6)
Torsional property, a = SQRT(E*Cw/G*J)
Modulus of elasticity of steel = 29,000 ksi
Shear modulus of elasticity of steel = 11,200 ksi
Warping statical moment at a point on the cross section (in.^4)
Distance from outside face of web of channel shape to Y-axis (in.)
Horizontal distance from the outer edge of a channel web to its shear center (in.) = (approx.) tf*(d-tf)^2*(b
Polar radius of gyration about the shear center (in.) = SQRT(xo^2+yo^2+(Ix+Iy)/A)
Flexural constant, H = 1-(xo^2+yo^2)/ro(bar)^2)
Radius of gyration of compression flange plus 1/3 of compression web area, taken about an axis in plane of web (in.)
Ratio of of total depth of member to area of compression flange of member = d/(bf*tf)
Moment of inertia of member taken about X-axis (in.^4)
Elastic section modulus of member taken about X-axis (in.^3)
Standard gage (bolt spacing) for member (in.)
