RE: HSS vs WF columns

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

In this area, square and rectangular HSS is formed from round HSS.

Also on this thread, I was recently informed by an engineer that HSS was
more economical because it had less surface area to paint than an equivalent
W shape. I stored that tidbit away for future cocktail parties.

Well, then, color me "surprised."

I'd have thought that the fabrication of HSS from flat sheet with an
auto-welded seam would be very comparable in price than hot-rolling used
to produced the WF shapes.

So, again, I'm surprised.
