moment of inertia
what is the problem
Isn't that immaterial?
It just depends on which direction your x vector is pointing relative to the I-BEAM....right?
Apparently it is using the coordinate system you highlight in the center. In this case the values are correct and Iy > Ix
Does anyone know?
Are the table values wrong?
It just looks like the ones in the table have been rounded to the nearest whole number. How accurate are they? I find it hard to believe that every single moment of inertia number comes out to be an exact whole number.
I think that they are rounding. Which would explain your number in Solidworks.
Yeah those values are never going to be exact. I was positively surprised about their accuracy actually.
