# Steel I Beam Center of Gravity Calculator

The center of gravity is a point from which the weight of a body or system may be considered to act. It is the average location of the weight of an object. The following is the Steel I beam center of gravity calculator to calculate the center point of the structural steel I beam to be used in construction works. The center of gravity of beam sections is useful for beam analysis when the moment of inertia is required for calculations such as shear/bending stress and deflection.

The center of gravity is a point from which the weight of a body or system may be considered to act. It is the average location of the weight of an object. The following is the Steel I beam center of gravity calculator to calculate the center point of the structural steel I beam to be used in construction works. The center of gravity of beam sections is useful for beam analysis when the moment of inertia is required for calculations such as shear/bending stress and deflection.

#### Formula:

Xg = B / 2 Yg = H / 2 + h Where, Xg = Center of Gravity (X-Axis) Yg = Center of Gravity (Y-Axis) B = Width H = Flange-Flange Inner Face Height h = Flange Thickness

### Example:

Calculate the Steel I beam center of gravity with the width of 50 mm, flange-flange inner face height of 30 mm, and the flange thickness of 40 mm.

#### Solution:

Xg = 50 / 2 = 25 mm Yg = (30 / 2) + 40
= 55 mm
