steel designation

Note to self:

currently workin’ on steel drawings for a project somewhere north of Manila

STEEL DESIGNATION 

W= D x B x T x t x m

C= D x B x T x t x m

WT= D x B x T x t x m

L= D x B x T

LC = D x B c x t x m

CHS = Dia x T x m

RHS = D x B x T x m

SHS = D x B x T x m

 

where:

W= I beam section

C= channel

WT= T section cut from W

L= angle

LC = lipped channel

CHS = circular hollow section

RHS = rectangular hollow section

SHS = square hollow section

D = depth of member

B = flange width

T = flange, leg, wall thickness

t = web thickness, thickness

c = lip depth

m = mass kg/m
