Steel Base Plate

A steel plate which is attached to the bottom of a column that usually sits on a foundation and is secured by anchor rods. The base plate is designed by the engineer to distribute the load of the column that it supports over the much weaker masonry or concrete. Thus the plate is designed to distribute the loading over a sufficient area so that the concrete or masonry is not crushed by a concentrated load. Design of such plates is covered in Part 14 of the Manual

Steel Decking

An orthotropic bridge or orthotropic deck is one whose deck typically comprises a structural steel deck plate stiffened either longitudinally or transversely, or in both directions. This allows the deck both to directly bear vehicular loads and to contribute to the bridge structure’s overall load-bearing behaviour. The orthotropic deck may be integral with or supported on a grid of deck framing members such as floor beams and girders. The same is also true of the concrete slab in a composite girder bridge, but the steel orthotropic deck is considerably lighter,

Expanded Metal , Diamond Plate, Sheets and Plates

Expanded metal is a form of metal stock made by shearing a metal plate in a press, so that the metal stretches, leaving diamond-shaped voids surrounded by interlinked bars of the metal. The most common method of manufacture is to simultaneously slit and stretch the material with one motion. It is often shortened to exmet, which also refers to a commercial firm by the same name that manufactures expanded metal. Also referred to as perforated metal, it is a


A rebar (short for reinforcing bar), also known as reinforcing steel, reinforcement steel, or a deformed bar, is a common steel bar, and is commonly used as a tensioning device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures holding the concrete in compression. It is usually formed from carbon steel, and is given ridges for better mechanical anchoring into the concrete. In Australia, it is colloquially known as reo.

Steel Black Pipe

Both Galvanized pipe and black pipe are made from steel, but the coating applied to them after forging differs. Galvanized pipe is coated with a layer of zinc to minimize corrosion, while black pipe has a black oxide coating that forms after it is forged.   Uses With a lifespan of 40 years, galvanized pipe is primarily used for non-residential water lines and outdoor fixtures that require the strength of steel, such as railings and fence posts.

Steel Tubing

Pipes are passageways. Tubes are structural. A pipe is generally measured by inside diameter or ID.(IE: You could roll a 2″ golf ball through a 2″ NOM pipe.) Tube, on the other hand, is measured by Outside Diameter. (So your golf ball would have the same O.D. as the 2″ tube.) Tubing Weight — Tubing Weight 1/2″ Sq. Tube x 16GA x 24′ 9.36 3 x 2 x 11GA tube x 24′ 93.6 3/4″ Sq.

Sheet Metal

Sheet metal is simply metal formed into thin and flat pieces. It is one of the fundamental forms used in metalworking, and can be cut and bent into a variety of different shapes. Countless everyday objects are constructed of the material. Thicknesses can vary significantly, although extremely thin thicknesses are considered foil or leaf, and pieces thicker than 6 mm (0.25 in) are considered plate. Sheet metal is available in flat pieces or as a coiled strip. The coils are formed by running a continuous

Steel Channels

There are two types of Steel channel sizes, one with designation MC and the other C as in steel c channel. The MC stands for miscellaneous channels range in sizes from 3 to 18 inches deep see figure 36 below. Similar to angle iron usage, the structural steel channel is mainly for light framing, though they can be used as main structural member such as beam or girder. Framing for floor penetrations are either done with steel

Angle Iron

An angle iron is metal bracket that is shaped like the letter L It is a flat metal piece of galvanized steel iron that is bent at a 90-degree angle. It is used in construction to provide structural support. It is also known as an L-bracket or an angle bar. An angle iron has a variety of uses and just about any building, home or room may have one. Large angle iron pieces are used

I Beams, H Beams , W Beams

I-beams, also known as H-beams, W-beams (for “wide flange”), rolled steel joist (RSJ), or double-T (especially in Polish, Spanish and German) are beams with an I- or H-shaped cross-section. The horizontal elements of the “I” are flanges, while the vertical element is the web. The web resists shear forces while the flanges resist most of the bending moment experienced by the beam. Beam theory shows that the I-shaped section is a very efficient form for
