PART 5 – WELDED SHAPES – 1976 SERIES – PROPERTIES AND DIMENSIONS
Part 5 of the Steel Design Series (SDS-5) provides tables of properties and dimensions for the first series of Welded Wide-Flange (WWF) sections produced to metric dimensions, reprinted from the Handbook of Steel Construction, 2nd Edition, 1976.
Part 7 – Beam Load Tables – Rectangular HSS
SDS-7 provides tables for selecting flexural members and estimating maximum beam reactions. The Beam Load Tables for rectangular Hollow Structural Sections (HSS) list the total uniformly distributed factored loads for beams in strong-axis bending. Two sets of tables are provided: one set based on CSA G40.21-350W steel (Fy = 350 MPa) and another based on ASTM A500 Grade C (Fy = 345 MPa). Two design examples are given to illustrate the use of the tables.
