  • 1 cm4 = 10-8 m = 104 mm
  • 1 in4 = 4.16x105 mm4 = 41.6 cm4
  • 1 cm3 = 10-6 m = 103 mm

The standard method for specifying the dimensions of a American Standard Steel Channels is like C 5 x 9. which is a beam 5 inches deep with a weight 9 lb/ft.

I-shaped cross-section beams:

  • Britain : Universal Beams (UB) and Universal Columns (UC)
  • Europe : IPE. HE. HL. HD and other sections
  • US : Wide Flange (WF) and H sections
