What is I-Beam Steel?

I-beam steel, also known as I-beam or H-beam steel, is a product created through the hot-rolling process in the shape of the letter “I.” With a cross-sectional shape resembling the letter “I,” this type of steel is widely used in the construction and industrial design sectors. Although it has a similar appearance to H-beam steel, accurately distinguishing between the two is often crucial due to the differing properties and applications.

I-beam steel is also referred to as H-beam steel and is produced through the hot-rolling process in the shape of the letter “I”

I-beam steel is considered a product with a balanced structure, providing high rigidity. Consequently, it is widely applied in various fields. Utilizing this type of steel in construction can offer significant benefits in terms of cost reduction, construction time, as well as convenience for disassembly or relocation.

I-beam steel comes in various sizes and is commonly used in different types of projects with various purposes. However, as each project has specific technical requirements and applications, selecting the appropriate type of steel and assessing its quality through steel grades is necessary to ensure performance and durability for each specific application.

Calculating the Weight of I-Beam Steel

The weight of I-beam steel depends on factors such as its specific dimensions. Typically, the weight of I-beam steel is calculated based on a specific length unit, usually over 1 meter or 1 foot. To accurately calculate the weight of an I-beam section, you need to know its specific dimensions (length, thickness, width) and use these parameters to calculate the weight based on the specific gravity of the material.

For example, the formula for calculating the weight of I-beam steel is:

Weight = Thickness × Width × Length × Specific gravity of steel

Technical specifications such as the specific gravity of steel are usually provided by the manufacturer or can be found in technical specification tables. This helps to calculate the specific weight of an I-beam section based on its technical specifications.

Mass of I-Beam Steel

The mass of I-beam steel can be calculated using the following formula:

Mass = Thickness × Width × Length × Density of steel


Thickness: Thickness of the flange or web of the I-beam (measured in mm or inches).
Width: Horizontal size of the I-beam (measured in mm or inches).
Length: Length of the I-beam section (measured in meters or feet).
Density of steel: Density of steel, typically measured in kg/m³ or lb/in³.

This formula will give you the mass of an I-beam section based on specific size dimensions and the density of that type of steel. The density of steel can often be found in technical documents or the manufacturer’s data sheet.

Steel Grades of I-Beam

Different steel grades of I-beam are classified according to different origins and production standards, such as:

  • Russian Steel Grades: CT3 and others, produced according to GOST 380-88 standards.
  • Japanese Steel Grades: SS400 and similar types, produced according to standards SB410, JIS G 3101, 3010.
  • Chinese Steel Grades: Q235B, SS400, and others, produced according to standards JIS G3101, SB410.
  • American I-Beam Steel Grades: A36, produced according to ASTM A36 standards.

Each steel grade has its own origin and production standards, which can affect the specific properties of the steel. The choice of steel type is determined based on the specific needs and purposes of the investor.

What Are the Characteristics of I-Beam Steel?

The prominent features of I-beam steel in the industry include:

  • Large Cross-Sectional Area and High Balance: I-beam steel with a wide cross-sectional area creates high balance, providing excellent load-bearing capacity.
  • Balanced Structure and Good Elasticity: With a balanced structure, I-beam steel offers stability and good elasticity.
  • Low Deformation and Warping: I-beam steel does not deform or warp under heavy pressure, ensuring the stability of the structure.
  • Diversity in Design and Size: I-beam steel comes in various types and sizes, suitable for diverse construction projects.
  • Weather Resistance and Application in Harsh Environments: I-beam steel is resistant to weather and chemical corrosion, making it a reliable choice in harsh conditions.
  • Short Construction Time and Low Maintenance Costs: Rapid and easy construction helps reduce costs, and maintenance expenses are kept under control.
  • Lighter Weight Compared to H-Beam Steel: I-beam steel is lighter, facilitating transportation and usage.

  • High Quality and Compliance with International Standards: Hòa Phát’s I-beam steel is produced according to international standards, ensuring high quality and meeting all technical requirements and safety criteria.
