RE: Use a lot of W Shapes? Here's something useful!

There was an article in AISC Engineering Journal along time ago (80's?)
about how to do that but I did a quick search and I couldn't find it.

This is a pretty basic conversion. It is from wt x 144 / 490 = A. The 144
is the conversion of sq. ft to sq in. The 490 is pcf (the weight of steel).

A more interesting one is converting weight to section modulus or vice
versa. I don't have that one at my fingertips, but I will try to find it.
