Hi All,

As we know that,practically major axis is perpendicular to the depth of the section and minor axis is parallel to the depth of the section.

Theoretically,is it calculated by using moment inertia?

Please find the attached image for reference.

Thank you,
sathya.

Yes, we need to calculate M.I to identify the major axis. Axis about which M.I is maximum we will call it as  Major axis and other orthogonal axis as minor axis.


  1. For a rectangular section, we will assume larger dimension to be depth and smaller dimension to be width. M.I of rectangular section about an axis perpendicular to larger dimension(Depth) is always maximum and M.I  about an axis parallel to larger dimension(depth) is always minimum.
  2. If we calculate M.I of Unsymmetrical sections, we will find the difference. Eg. L-Sections, Double-I Star sections etc.
  3. Its not like that always axis perpendicular to depth is major axis.

Regards,
