- I = moment of inertia
- W = section modulus

The standard method for specifying the dimension of a American Standard Beam is for example W 20 x 86, which is *20 inches* deep with a weight of *86 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
