Steel beam Sections

Steel beam This part of the site represents standard steel sections tables (steel beam tables). Unique web design of our steel sections tables allows scrolling the table's data in two directions and keeping the headers of the rows and columns visible on the screen - please allow your browser to run scripts, otherwise the tables can't work. We provide classification of steel beam of different parts of the world.

You can find in our tables both dimensions and properties for majority of the standard steel section like steel beams and columns, channels, angles, steel hollow sections.

At first, this part of the site was intended for internal use only. Later, we decided to open the tables for our visitors. Here is collected a variety of the steel beam tables which our team has used in its practice. In the event that we use other new kinds of steel sections tables we will willingly provide that standard data table on the site for our visitors use.

Why we prefer to use our web version of the tables versus a printed form:

1)  It is extremely convenient to use;
2)  It is available anywhere and anytime you need it;
3)  It can be updated easily.

The steel sections classification mostly used in North America:
Values are presented in either Imperial (inch-pound) units or SI (metric) units. The data presented in each system isn't exactly equal; therefore, each system should be used essentially separately. Combinations values from these systems aren't allowed. (ASTM A6/A6M).
  • I-beams (I-shaped cross-section)
    W - Wide flange steel beam (I-shaped cross-section) have parallel flange surfaces.
    S - American Standard Beam (I-shaped cross-section) have a slope on the inner flange surfaces.
    HP - Bearing Pile (H-shaped cross-section) have parallel flange surfaces and equal web and flange thicknesses.
    M - Miscellaneous shapes cannot be classified as standard i-beams (W,S,HP), available from a limited number of manufacturers.

  • Channels (C-shaped cross-section)
    C - American Standard Channels have a slope on the inner flange surfaces.
    MC -American Miscellaneous Channels cannot be classified as standard channels, available from a limited number of manufacturers.

  • Angles (L-shaped cross-section)
    L - shapes are equal leg and unequal leg angles.
