CEE/ME 241 Lecture Notes for Sections 10.2,10.5 2 APPLICATIONS Cross-sectional areas of structural members are usually made of simple shapes or combination of simple shapes. Is there a simpler method for determining the MoI of such cross-sectional areas as compared to the integration method? If yes, can you describe the method? APPLICATIONS (continued) This is another example of a structural member with a composite cross-area. Design calculations typically require use of the MoI for these cross-sectional areas. Can you describe a simple method to calculate MoI?
