T section beam Calculator
We can calculate the weight of this T – section in the same way as we calculated for I – section
Here, we will have to know the outer and inner edge dimensions.
Volume of the T – section = cross-sectional area × Length
Where X1 is outer edge width, Y1 is outer edge height and x2 is inner edge width, y2 is inner edge height.
Let us consider a 1 m long T – section of outer edge width 80 mm = 0.080 m, outer edge height = 80 mm = 0.080 m and inner edge width 35 mm = 0.035 m , inner edge height = 70 mm = 0.070 m.
So, Volume of the T -section = [ ( 0.080 × 0.080 ) – 2 × ( 0.035 x 0.070 ) ] × 1 = 0.0015 m3 Hence, mass of the T section = density × volume = 7900 × 0.0015 = 11.85 kg
In this way, we can calculate the mass of a T section with different dimensions.
