Sheet metal K Factor

Dear All,


The formula for K-Factor is t/T

where t=distance from neutral axis,T=Thickness of Sheet Metal.


Can anyone tell me how do we generally locate our neural axis. Its not always neccessary that our neural axis lies at the middle of the sheet.

I know it depends upon the material also. Say the material is HR (Hot Rolled) or CRCA ( Cold Rolled Closely Annealed),or SS (Stainless Steel)

Still any specific formula or method where in i can know where my neutral axis lies means at what distance does ot lie from ends.



Thanks & Regards,
