Commonest Grades for Steel Sections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I need to know the three most common grades for each type of 
steel section available in US. This is my current list, in order of 
increasing strength, but I'm not sure if I have left out any commonly 
used grades. Any suggestions would be welcome.

W shapes
A36  A588  A992

M, S, HP, C, MC, L, WT, MT, ST shapes
A36  A588 only

HSS rectangular shapes
A501  A500-B  A500-C

HSS round shapes
A501  A500-B  A500-C

A53 only
