The standard method for specifying the dimensions of a American Wide Flange Beam is for example W 6 x 25, which is  6 inches deep with a weight of 25 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
