Calculate the weight of U-Beam steel quickly for your construction projects. Essential for architects and builders.

A handy tool for figuring out the weight of U-shaped metal profiles. This calculator uses a formula that looks at the outer and inner dimensions of the U section, giving you an accurate weight estimate.

Whether you're an experienced engineer or just someone into metalworking, this calculator makes it easy to find out how heavy your U section is, making your projects more efficient.

A U section, also called a channel or C-section, is a versatile metal shape that looks like the letter 'U'. It's commonly used in construction and manufacturing because it's strong and easy to work with. U sections come in different sizes and materials, fitting a variety of uses.

Calculating the weight of a U section involves looking at the outer and inner dimensions.

The formula is: **Volume (V) = Cross-Sectional Area (A) × Length (L)**

$V=\left(\right(X1\times Y1)\u2013(x2\times y2\left)\right)\times L$

Where,

This formula considers both the bigger and smaller dimensions for a more accurate weight estimate.

To measure a U section, find the outer width (X1), outer height (Y1), inner width (x2), inner height (y2), and length (L). The outer part is the bigger side, and the inner part is the smaller side of the U.

Absolutely! The calculator works for U sections made from different materials. Just input the right dimensions and material density for accurate weight estimates.

The calculator supports different units like inches, millimeters, centimeters, and meters. Just make sure to use the same units for accurate results.

U sections come in standard sizes, but manufacturers can also make custom sizes for specific projects. Check with suppliers for both standard and custom U section options.
