# polar moment of inertia for compound shape

I have a shape that I'd like to calculate the polar moment of inertia for:

the diameter is 600mm; the hexagon in the middle sides are 70mm each; the holes around the hexagon are 130mm from the center of the disk and they are 16mm.

$$\frac{\pi D^4}{32} - \frac{5\sqrt3}{8}s^4$$

How can I remove the 5 holes from the calculation? Is that even something that's done?

[EDIT] The disk is 30mm thickness. The mass of the disk is 66.5Kg

The mass of the small holes is total 0.3Kg

The hexagon mass is 3Kg

weight without holes is 66Kg

mass with the circular cutouts is 66.5-0.3 = 66.2kg mass with the hexagon cutout is 66.5-3 = 63.5Kg mass with all the cutouts is 63.3Kg

Which percent change in weight would help calculate the polar moment of inertia for this shape?

• How thick is the disc? What is the change in mass with and without the holes - how much difference will this make in % terms? Commented Aug 24, 2017 at 16:03

$$I_\text{assembly} = I_\text{solid cylinder} - I_\text{hexagon} - 6 (I_\text{small cylinder} + m r^2 )$$
