R R Emery, R F Lewis: 457. Weight Moment of Inertia Nomographs. 1964.



Seventeen nomographs for the calculation of weight moments of inertia for various shapes have been developed. In a random sample of 373 calculations an accuracy of plus or minus 5 percent was achieved for 93 percent of the calculations. The theory of additive and ‘N’ nomographs is briefly outlined to facilitate the preparation of more specialized charts.
