Re: Old Steel Section Properties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To Kipp,

	The ST4WF10 have changed slightly over the years.  This T was almost
certainly cut from a W8x20 which was modified slightly about 20 years
ago to become the present W 8x21 in the AISC handbook.  The new
designation would be WT 4x10.5 on page 1-134 of AISC ASD manual. 
Someone with an AISC handbook predating 1975 should have the old data if
you need it.

	Hope this helps
