Weight Formula for Unequal Angles

Unequal Angles Weight Calculator

The weight formula for unequal angle steel is similar to that of equal angle steel, but it takes into account the unequal dimensions of the angles. Here’s a generalized formula for calculating the weight of unequal angle steel:

  1. Calculate the area of the cross-section: The cross-sectional area A of the unequal angle steel can be calculated using the formula:



  • b1​ and b2​ are the unequal side lengths of the angle.
  • t is the thickness of the angle.
  1. Calculate the weight per meter: The weight per meter W of the unequal angle steel can be calculated using the formula:



  • ρ is the density of the material (in kg/m³).
  • L is the length of the angle (in meters).
  • F is a factor that adjusts for the specific shape and dimensions of the angle.

The factor F is determined based on the geometry and is often provided by standards or reference materials.

  1. Calculate the total weight: The total weight of the unequal angle steel can be calculated by multiplying the weight per meter by the length of the angle.

Keep in mind that these formulas assume a homogeneous material density and neglect any rounded corners or other minor deviations from the ideal geometric shape. For precise calculations, it’s recommended to consult specific standards or engineering references that provide detailed formulas and factors for various types of steel angles.
