W6x15 15 5.99
W6x16 16 4.03

### How much does a w12x40 steel member that is 10 feet long weigh?

With these measurements, this would mean each beam weighs 640 pounds. If you have 10 of them, you would have 6,400 pounds total (just over 3 tons).

#### How do you calculate wide flange beam weight?

Wide flange beams are designated by the letter W followed by the nminal depth in inches and the weight in pounds per foot. Thus W12 × 19 designates a wide flange beam with a depth of 12 inches and a nominal weight of 19 pounds per foot.

What is a W10x22 beam?

In the United States, steel I-beams are commonly specified using the depth and weight of the beam. For example, a “W10x22” beam is approximately 10 in (25 cm) in depth (nominal height of the I-beam from the outer face of one flange to the outer face of the other flange) and weighs 22 lb/ft (33 kg/m).

How do you calculate the weight of an I-beam?

Straight beams: 1. Standard weight: We calculate the standard weight as follows: G = L * mweight, where L is the length of the beam calculated as the difference between the extreme points of the beam body along the direction of the beam axis, taking into account all features except holes.

## What is the weight of an I beam?

“I”-Beam – Standard

Designation Depth in inches x weight Per Ft. Lbs Weight Per Ft. (Lbs.) Web Thickness (inches)
96.0 13/16
S24 x (24×7) 80.0 1/2
90.0 5/8
100.0 3/4

### How much does a 40 ft steel beam weigh?

For example, a beam with a size of W12 x 50 x 40 has a height of 12 inches, a weight of 50 pounds per lineal foot, and a length of 40 feet; according to the figures, this beam will weigh 2,000 pounds. You can determine the size of an S-Shape I-Beam in the same way.

#### Are steel beams expensive?

A steel beam costs \$100 to \$400 per foot to install or between \$1,200 and \$4,200 on average. Installing a more complicated steel beam or replacing a load-bearing wall with a support beam costs \$4,000 to \$10,000. Steel I-beam prices are \$6 to \$18 per foot for just the materials.
