# L Beam Steel (Angle Steel) Weight Calculator (Online & Free)

Have you ever wondered about the hidden hero behind modern construction marvels? L-shaped steel, also known as angle steel, is a versatile material that plays a crucial role in large-scale projects like shipbuilding. In this article, we’ll explore the unique properties and advantages of L-shaped steel, as explained by an experienced mechanical engineer. Discover how this innovative profile is revolutionizing the industry and enhancing the efficiency of modern structures.

## What is L-shaped steel?

L-shaped steel, commonly referred to as angle steel, is a new type of profile designed to meet the demands of large-scale ship construction.

When its height is the same as that of a flat steel profile, L-shaped steel has a larger section coefficient and greater rigidity compared to spherical flat steel.

Having a larger section coefficient increases the storage capacity of a ship and enhances its economic efficiency.

Furthermore, at the same section coefficient, the L-shaped steel panel is slightly thinner than spherical flat steel, which benefits the quality of welding.

## Type of L beam steel

L-shaped steel is mainly categorized into two types: equal angle steel and unequal angle steel. The latter can further be divided into two subtypes: equal thickness on unequal sides and unequal thickness on unequal sides.

As per the dimensional, shape, weight, and allowable deviation specifications of hot-rolled section steel (GB/T 706-2008), the length of hot-rolled L-beam steel is usually between 5m and 19m.

Typically, L-beam steel can be delivered based on either actual weight or theoretical weight in the market. The deviation between the theoretical weight and actual weight of the L-beam steel should not exceed ±5% to ±3%.

You can use the L beam steel weight calculator below to calculate the weight of the L beam steel.
