Part 4 of the CISC Steel Design Series (SDS-4), “Welded Shapes – Properties and Dimensions” has been published. Tables of Welded Wide-Flange (WWF) and Welded Reduced-Flange (WRF) shapes are reprinted from the Handbook of Steel Construction, 10th Edition. They are intended mainly for designers involved in renovation projects.
Essar Steel Algoma Inc. had been the prime producer until their production of welded shapes discontinued in late 2010. WWF beam and column shapes, and WRF shapes are generally not carried in inventory.
