Re: Old Beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
 My oldest AISC book is the 6th Edition (copyright 1963, 1964 & 1965)
You might have a combination channel beam  8w11.5 (the vertical channel is always a 8C11.5, the added channel or angle varies)
There are several types:
1-Vertical Channel with Horizontal channel on top, flanges down
2-Vertical Channel with Horizontal channel on top, flanges up
3-Vertical Channel with Horizontal angle at side of bottom, short leg up
4-Vertical Channel with Horizontal angle on bottom, flange down, short leg down
Does this sound like what you have? If so, let me know the configuration and size of the added piece and I can email you the properties.
