Title: RE: Metric Steel Shapes

Reference: AISC, LRFD, Metric, Vol I
S100x11.5=S4x7.7

multiply kg/m (mass/length) by gravity (9.81 m/s^2)
this changes kg/m (mass/length) to N/m (force/length)
covert N/m (force/length) to lbf/ft (force/length) by multiplying by 1/14.59 (conversion table back of AISC manual)
11.5 * 9.81*1/14.59=7.7

Alcohol and Math do not mix.
Don't Drink and Derive.  :)

1) Where did the "11" come from? What does it signify?

2) Where did you find the information?

Thanks.
