Re: Old Steel Shapes

Glenn -

AISC formerly had a publication titled "Iron and Steel Beams, 1873 to 1952'
that contained properties for the different sections from different
manufacturers.  I believe this has now been superceded by their 'Steel
Design Guide 15:  AISC Rehabilitation and Retrofit Guide', which contains
the properties mentioned above along with some other information.  I would
recommend getting this Design Guide to give you a more complete picture of
the section properties, since the steel sections in 1940 weren't
necessarily equal from different manufacturers.

I’ve got some drawings from 1940 calling out steel “B” shapes.  I could
list the ones for which I need properties, (about 10), but I thought I
would try to get a manual off of eBay.  Presently, I see a 1930, its says
it’s a AISC 1st edition, and a couple of 1948 manuals, 4th edition?  Would
those be close enough?  Would I need a manufacturer’s manual?
