Steel microstructure types and their interpretation

What is H beam?

H-section steel is an economic section and high-efficiency profile with more optimized section area distribution and more reasonable strength weight ratio.

It is named because its section is the same as the English letter “H”.

Because all parts of H-section steel are arranged at right angles, H-section steel has the advantages of strong bending resistance, simple construction, cost saving and light structural weight in all directions, and has been widely used.

H-section steel is also called universal steel beam, wide edge (edge) I-beam or parallel flange I-beam. The cross section of H-section steel usually includes web and flange plate.

Types of H beam

There are many specifications of H-beam, and the classification methods are as follows.

(1) According to the flange width of the H beam, it is divided into wide flange, middle flange and narrow flange H-section steel.

The flange width B of wide flange and middle flange H-shaped steel is greater than or equal to the web height H.

The flange width B of narrow flange H-shaped steel is about half of the web height H.

(2) It is divided into H-shaped steel beam, H-shaped steel column, H-shaped steel pile and H-shaped steel beam with extremely thick flange.

Sometimes, parallel leg channel steel and parallel flange T-shaped steel are also included in the scope of H-section steel.

Generally, narrow flange H-section steel is used as beam material and wide flange H-section steel is used as column material.

Therefore, it is also known as beam H-section steel and column H-section steel.

(3) According to the production method, it is divided into welded H-section steel and rolled H-section steel.

(4) According to the size, it is divided into large, medium and small H-section steel.

Generally, products with a web height H of more than 700mm are called large, those with a web height of 300 ~ 700mm are called medium, and those with a web height of less than 300mm are called small.

  1. Hi I need HW125X125X6.5X9 and HW100X100X6X8 beams in India. Please advise where I can get. Thank you.

    S.Raja sekaran

  2. Hi,

    Please advise if you get standard off the shelve H-254x254x107kg/m beam? Or is this a non-standard item that needs special manufacture?


  3. Engr. A. Ade. Adebayo

    Is this off standard h-beam: Height=210mm, Width=130mm?
    Better still, how do we classify the above dimension?
    Engr. A. Ade. Adebayo FNSE

    1. Different countries will have a different standards. And the H beam can be classified by:
      (1) Flange width
      (2) Use
      (3) Mode of production
      (4) Size specification

  4. Would a width a 10 in Flanges, 5/8 inch thick x Web 16 inch deep, and 5/8 inch thick, will support what length in feet a commercial building and the columns are the right size

  5. I would like to see an average price per beam. I understand that companies sell them per 10 making the cost per single beam cheaper, but here in Indonesia prices vary a lot and of course there is mark up price. A 250×250 beams 12m long costs us 13.5jt ($910) at one place and 18.1jt ($1220) at another place. Is the steel material different?

    Is there a weight vs reinforced foundation volume table? If you need to support the weight of 300+ kg on 2 beams, and the reinforced foundation (chicken claw?) is 50x50x20 mm enough?
