Welcome to our calculator for the moment of inertia for a triangular section. Enter the height (H) and width (B) of your section below, and see the results in the output section below.

This tool calculates **Ixx** and **Iyy** about the centroidal axis.

H

:150mmb2>0 if angle α is acute (<90°)

B1

The moment of inertia of a triangular section can be calculated using the equations shown to the right. B1 represents the section's width, and H is its height.

b2>0 if angle α is acute (<90°)

b2<0 if angle α is obtuse (>90°)

b2=0 for right triangle
