The standard method for specifying the dimensions of a American Standard Steel Channels is like C 5 x 9. which is a beam 5 inches deep with a weight 9 lb/ft.

I-shaped cross-section beams:

  • Britain : Universal Beams (UB) and Universal Columns (UC)
  • Europe : IPE. HE. HL. HD and other sections
  • US : Wide Flange (WF) and H sections
