Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to calculate the section modulus of some channel section. I was going to use the value provided on the data sheet but its confusing me because it has values of section modulus in the X and Y axis. Am i right in assuming that i use section mod value where the load is perpendicular to its axis?

Also how would you calculate this value from scratch. Im familiar with calculating the section modulus of a sections that are symetrical in two axis, but not with those in one.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Amir
