## 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 (Wfâ€‹): 0.3 meters
• Thickness of flange (Tfâ€‹): 6 mm = 0.006 meters
• Thickness of web (Twâ€‹): 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 â€“ 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/m3
• 1000 mm = 1 meter
• 1 inch = 25.4 mm
• 1 feet = 12 inch
• 1 feet = 304.8 mm
• 1 meter = 3.29 feet
