**What is a W12 beam?**

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.

**How do you calculate beam size?**

The formula for the section modulus is beam width times beam depth squared divided by 6. A two 2-by-6 standard beam has actual dimensions of 1.5-by-5.5 inches which would give a section modulus of 1.5 x 5.5 x 5.5 / 6 = 7.6 which is not enough for this example. A 2-by-8 beam would be sufficient.

## What does W mean in steel Beams?

Wide-Flange Beams

Lets start with the most widely used beam for structural steel. W-Beams, so called because they are technically known as Wide-Flange Beams, come in a wide variety of size from 4” tall to 44” tall.

**What does W12x26 mean?**

W12x26, for example means that d (depth) is approximately 12 inches and the beam weighs 12 pounds per lineal foot.

**What are the different sizes of steel?**

They are manufactured in various nominal bore diameters and in each size there are three classes, light, medium, and heavy.

### What is standard size of beam?

THE STANDARD SIZE OF THE BEAMS In a residential building it is 9 ʺ × 12 ʺ or 225 mm × 300 mm standard size according to (IS codes). The minimum RCC beam size should not be less than 9 ʺ × 9 ʺ or 225mm × 225mm with the addition of a 125mm slab thickness.

**What is the formula of depth?**

Answer: Use the following formula for measuring ocean depth. D = V Times 1/2 T D = Depth (in meters) T= Time (in seconds) V = 1507 m/s (speed of sound in water) Calculate the depth foe each of the times given below, using the formula above.
