Triangle


Calculate the second moment of area (also known as moment of inertia of plane area, area moment of inertia, or second area moment) and the section modulus of a profile with triangular cross section, width A and height B. Use this to calculate deflection or stress in a loaded profile.

A B y y G

\( I_{yy} = \dfrac {AB^{3}}{36} \)

\( W_{yy} = \dfrac {AB^{2}}{24} \)
