Section Modulus

Hi,

Is it possible to find out the Section Modulus of any part along different axes with the help of NX?

If yes, then how?

Hi,

Will "SECTION INERTIA" be of any use to you? Agreed you will have to do one more calculation manually for obtaining section modulus afterwards but that is pretty straight forward. Also check if the equivalent recatngle section option be of any help to you.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Due to the complexity of a part, it is not always possible to get its section modulus or even if it is, its not exact. However, using "Parallel Axis Theorem" helps but it takes considerable time if a part is complex enough!

So, is it possible that we get the same throgh 'NX'?

 

Kind Regards,

Hi,

Did you try Section Inertia? It will help you get MOI (w.r.t to any axis...just need to orient your WCS accordingly). Attaching an image herewith.
