The standard method for specifying the dimensions of a standard hot rolled steel section includes using initials to designate the type of section, for example: UB 457 x 152 x 60, is a Universal Beam of nominal dimensions 457 mm deep, 152 mm wide and weight 60 kg/m.

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
