Help on Area Moment of Inertia

  1. Jul 11, 2012 #1
    Hello, I am trying to calculate the second moment of inertia for a hollow tube with a reinforcement bar that goes through the tube. The cross section is basically a thin-walled circle (0.1" thickness) with a horizontal bar (about 0.1" thick for now) that spans the diameter of the circle. How would I go about calculating this?

    Thanks in advanced for your help!
