Assuming that I have a C-Channel(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When the load acts along the X-X axis, we take I_{yy}for the Bending moment calculations. Similarly, when load acts along the Y-Y axis, we take I_{xx}. But if i have a load that acts on Z-Z axis, how do I calculate the Moment of Inertia?

PLS SEE THE ATTACHMENTS in the following SEQUENCE

FIRST : Attchmnt : TOP VIEW

SECOND : Attchmnt : DETAIL A

THIRD : Attchmnt : ELEVATION

My specific Doubts:

- Do I have to take I
_{zz}?- If yes, is I
_{zz}=I_{xx}+I_{yy}(applying Perpendicular Axes Theorem)

Can Anyone help me?
