## How to use I Beam Weight Calculator?

I Beam Weight Calculator helps you to calculate weight of single as well as total weight and cost of I Beam of different thickness easily. To use I Beam Weight Calculator follow the steps below,

**Step1:-** Input the length, width, thickness of flange, web and quantity of the steel I Beam.

**Step2:-** Input the cost per kg of the plate.

**Step3:-** Click on calculate button to get the result. Here you will get following result.

Weight of Single I Beam.

Weight of Total I Beam.

Cost of One I Beam.

Cost of Total I Beam.

## Why weight and Cost of I Beam is necessary to Calculate ?

I beam is a structural member which transfer load from the slab and transfer to the column. I beam may be of different materials like reinforced concrete, steel, wood etc. Weight and cost of I beam is necessary to calculate due to following reasons.

- To know the actual load on the structure.
- To estimate the budget of the structure.
- To insure the dimension of beam according to availabe budget and load of the structure.
- To know the capacity of vehicles required to lift the steel I beam.

You can use I Beam Weight Calculator above or simply follow the steps to calculate the weight and cost of I Beam below.

## How to calculate weight of I Beam?

The weight of steel I Beam depends on length, width, thickness, of fange, web and quantity.

Let us assume the length of I beam is** 4 meter**, width of flange is **0.3 meter**, thickness of flange is **6 mm**, Thickness of web is **8 mm**, total height of I beam is **0.3 meter**, quantity of I beam is **5 in numbers** and cost per kg is **155 per Kg.**

**Solution:-**

Given,

- Length (L): 4 meters
- Width of flange (Wf): 0.3 meters
- Thickness of flange (Tf): 6 mm = 0.006 meters
- Thickness of web (Tw): 8 mm = 0.008 meters
- Total height (H): 0.3 meters
- Quantity: 5

**Step1:-** Total Area of Flange (Af) = Width of flange x thickness of flange x 2

Af = 0.3 x 0.006 x 2 = 0.0036 meter square

**{Note*There are two number of flange in I beam so, multiply it with 2}**

**Step2:-** Calculate Area of Web = (Total Height – 2 x Thickness of Flange) x Thickness of web

Aw = (0.3- 2 x 0.006) x0.008 = 0.288 x 0.008 = 0.002304 meter square.

**Step3:-** Add Total Area of I Beam

TA = Af + Aw = 0.0036 + 0.002304 = 0.005904 meter square.

**Step4:-** Weight of Single I Beam = **Volume x Density** = **Length x Area x Density**

Weight of steel plate = **L x TA x 7850** = **4 x 0.005904 x 7850** = **185.3 Kg.**

Hence, In this way we can calculate the total weight of I Beam.

**Step4:-** Cost of Single I Beam = Weight x Cost per Kg = **185.3 **x 155 = **28721.5 Rs.**

**Step5:-** Weight of Total I Beam = Single Weight x Quantity = **185.3** x 5 = **926.5 Kg**

**Step6:-** Weight of Total I Beam = Single Weight x Quantity = ** 28721.5** x 5 =

**143617.5 Rs.**

### Summary

**Weight of a single I-beam**:**185.3 kg****Weight of a Total I-beam**:**926.5 Kg****Cost of a single I-beam**:**28721.5****Rs.****Total cost for 5 I-beams**:**143617.5 Rs.**

### Standard Data used in I Beam weight Calculator

- Density of Steel Plate =
**7850 Kg/m**^{3} - 1000 mm = 1 meter
- 1 inch = 25.4 mm
- 1 feet = 12 inch
- 1 feet = 304.8 mm
- 1 meter = 3.29 feet
