Any insights to the referenced 1940’s system?

A colleague of mine was aware of an ASCE webinar you conducted titled “Antiquated Structural Systems”. Our firm is currently engaged in a remodeling effort to an existing school. This is a REVIT project and in attempting to model the existing structure we have come across a couple of callouts on the original plans (circa 1947) that we are not familiar with.
In one location, the verbiage “FK 10-10 @ 18.5 #/sf Cellular Steel Beams” is used and in another area “FK 18-18 @ 6.7 #/sf Cellular Steel Beams” is used.
In a section they appear to be displaying a member with a top and bottom flange supporting a 2” concrete slab with the verbiage “FK Type Inverted (See Plan for Type)”.
These drawings appear to have been prepared by Cletis R Foley, Architect – Engineer (Peoria, IL).
Would you have any idea what this might be?
