Just in case, Australia uses a similar designation system....
UB is "universal beam"

e.g: depth(mm)*width(mm)*mass(kg/meter)

for example: 610x305x149UB

the equivalent aussie universal beam is....

610UB149

and the same convention for universal columns etc....

There is also a book by N.S. Trahair and M.A. Bradford "The 
Behaviour and Design of Steel Structures" which is useful to 
compare provisions of AISC LRFD with AS4100 and BS5950....a 
handy reference..
