Usually in construction cost analysis or in structural design an engineer needs to know the weight of a steel section. This program helps you calculate the weight of a variety of sections, like rebar (both metric and standard) round and rectangular pipes, and an option to input the section area if you know it. Now the calculated numbers are exact, so there is no longer a need to consult the ASTM tables. Results are put on the stack in different units of linear weight, where you can PICK the one suited to your needs in your calculations. |
