Second Moment of Composite Area

By definition, second moment of an area about an axis is equal to the summation of the products of the square of the distance between the elemental area and the reference axis, and the elemental area over an area. If these elemental areas can be grouped into known component areas A1, A2, A3, ...., the second moment I of the composite area A with respect to an axis can be obtained by the summation of the second moments, I1, I2, I3, .... of these component areas A1, A2, A3, ...., about the same reference axis respectively.  Imply

The component area of a composite area is represented by a positive area while a hollow area is represented by a negative area.

Second Moment of Circular Area Example 1

Since a circular area can be considered as two semi-circular area or four quarter-circular area, the second moment of a circular area about the centroidal axis x' can be expressed in terms of the second moments of semi-circular areas or quarter-circular areas. As for two semi-circular areas,

image

Because of the square of the distance from the reference axis x', the second moments of the two semi-circular areas about axis x' are the same on two opposite sides of the reference axis. Imply

 As four quarter-circular areas,

image

Because of the square of the distance from the reference axis y', the second moments of the four quarter-circular areas about axis y' are the same on two opposite sides of the reference axis. Imply

Besides, the polar moment of an area can also be obtained similarly. Because of the square of the distance from the reference pole C, the second moments of the four quarter-circular areas about the pole C are the same. Imply

Second Moment of Circular Area Example 2

In example 1, the reference axis x' of the circular area is the same axis used in defining the second moment of the semi-circular areas and the quarter-circular areas, the second moments of the component areas can be added directly. But if the reference axis is changed to axis A, each second moment of a component area should be transfered to the desired axis A by parall-axis theorem or by calculation before adding.  As for two semi-circular areas,

image

Since the two second moments of the two semi-circular areas are about the axis x', the two second moments of the two semi-circular areas should be transfered to the axis A before adding accordingly. Imply

Negative Area of a composite area

image

Sometimes, an empty area in a composite area can also be considered in calculating the second moment of a composite area by changing the sign of the empty area to negative before adding. And therefore the empty component area of a composite area is also called negative area. For example, the second moment of an I-beam area starting with all positive components. Imply

Therefore, the second moment of an I-beam area starting with positive and negative components. Imply

Radius of gyration of composite area

Unlike the polar radius of gyration, kO which can be obtained using the two rectangular radius of gyration, kx and ky only, the radius of gyration of a composite area can not be obtained using the radii of gyration of all component areas of a composite area only. The radius of gyration of a composite area can be determined by the second moment of the composite area and the area of the composite area directly or making use of the radii of gyration of all component areas of a composite area together with the areas of the component areas of a composite area.
