Finding the Shear Center of a Planar Cross Section


New member
Can anyone tell me if the inertial properties in CATIA V5 R22 includes the location of the shear center for a nonsymmetrical, planar 2D cross section?

The CATIA V5 Inertia tool measures the Centroid of a 2D planar area, but not the Shear Center. One of the CATIA FEA workbenches might provide the Shear Center?
