    Section Properties of a profile

    George Karoubas

      In many CAD programms,for each profile, you can find not only the moment of inertia but the Section Modulus of this profile.

      How can someone find out the section modulus of a specific area (profile)?

      Moreover, can Solidworks find out the Plastic Section Modulus of an area? (This Section Modulus is where a specific profile, is split it in 2 areas where this Modulus is the same)


      These section properties are ouf outmost importance in every contemporary structural design norm like Eurocode 3 etc.


      Thank you
