# Table for Weight Calculation of H-I-U-V Shaped Steel – Latest Standard

In order to support students, engineers, and anyone who wants to quickly and accurately calculate the weight of H, U, I, V-shaped steel sections, we would like to share with you a formula and a commonly used table (barem) for these calculations.

What makes it even more special is the availability of software that facilitates, simplifies, and speeds up the process of checking the weight of various steel sections. Let’s take a look at it right away.

## Reasons for studying how to calculate the weight of steel sections in the construction field:

Steel is a crucial construction material widely used in the construction and manufacturing industries. Its strong properties and high load-bearing capacity have made it indispensable for creating structures that serve human life.

Understanding the specific weight of steel and various H-shaped steel sections is beneficial for investors and engineers to accurately measure the mass and meet their needs, avoiding unnecessary excess.

Moreover, the professional design process, through quantifying various drawings, requires engineers to apply precise calculations to obtain accurate results. This helps to minimize serious consequences during construction and avoid deviations from the initial design of the project.

Additionally, besides other types of steel sections, H-shaped steel has up to 2 different mass reference tables. This demands meticulous research from engineers to determine the appropriate steel mass for their specific usage needs.

## Accurate formula for calculating the weight of structural steel

As mentioned earlier, knowing how to calculate the weight of structural steel per meter length is extremely necessary, as we may not always have access to weight charts readily available.

The detailed formula for calculating the volume of the V equal-sided structural steel is as follows:

The formula for calculating the weight of non-equal-sided V-shaped structural steel

The method to calculate the weight of square box-shaped structural steel.

The formula for calculating the weight of rectangular box-shaped structural steel.

The formula for calculating the weight of hollow round steel (steel tube):

Formula: M = (Outer Diameter OD – Wall Thickness) × Wall Thickness (mm) × Length (m) × 0.02466

• Example: 114mm (OD) × 4mm (wall thickness) × 6m (length)
• Calculation: (114-4) × 4 × 6 × 0.02466 = 65.102kg
