Section Modulus for Framing (U. S. A. Units)

Description Computes cross sectional area properties of a framing member made up of multiple components (Like a angle iron placed on a piece of plate).  Area properties from this sheet can be used to determine flexural stress, average shear stress and deflections.  The inputs may seem a bit complicated but they are really easy to obtain and are clearly explained in the template instructions.

Electronic Document Type:  Microsoft Excel spreadsheet           Cost: $20.00 US funds

Number of Pages: single sheet                        


  • overall depth of framing member (for all components combined)

  • location of assumed neutral axis ANA (perpendicular to loading direction)

  • for each beam component the following is required: description, cross section dimensions, distance to centroid from ANA, radius of gyration (Option One - Area Property Tables not used)

  • for each beam component the following is required: description, cross sectional area, distance to centroid from ANA, moment of inertia about own centroid (Option Two - Area Property Tables used)


  • total cross sectional area

  • distance from cross sectional area centroid to the ANA

  • moment of inertia of framing member in direction of loading

  • section modulus of framing member in direction of loading

Suggested Reading:

  • any strength of materials text 

  • Basic Ship Theory, Rawson and Tupper
