Old Timers - 18B35 section properties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I hobbled over to my bookshelf, put on my spectacles and came up with a 
Bethlehem shapes catalog, 1967 Edition.  Now, if I can keep my strength up 
long enough to permit me to complete this message, here is the information:


Area           10.30 in^2
depth          17.71 in
Flange Width    6.0  in
   Thick         .429 in
Web Thick        .298 in
d/A(f)          6.88
I(xx)          512.3  in^4
S(xx)           57.9  in^3
r(xx)            7.05 in
I(yy)           15.4  in^4
S(yy)            5.12 in^3
r(yy)            1.22

Gasp! Gasp! Now, where is that Geritol?

What am I doing, anyway?

I once had a photographic memory, but now I am out of film.
