Unformatted text preview: Review of section properties: Centroid of an a rea (M 6:. The centroid of an area refers to the point that ' I defines the y geometric centre for the area. First moment of area \3 [yd/1 jdA A y: Centroid of composite section ...... ____| NOtB: xi. and y; are coordinates of centroid for sections for sections 1,2 and 3 {i=1,2,3) Second Area Moments The area moment of inertia is the second moment of area around a given axis. For example. given the 0—0 axis, the second moment of area can be calculated by d1=32dA Parallel Axis Theorem IMMW“ = J’ysz: I026 +5026“ : nydA+ bid/1+ I2ych A A A A A = yfA +1” +234.
