**Density
of Steel = 7850 kg/m ^{3} (kilogram / cubic meter)**

**Density
of Steel = 0.00785 kgs/mm**

**Weight Calculation Of
Solid Square Bar?**

**Solution:**

Standard formulas

**1.
Weight of Square Steel bar in kgs/m = **volume of steel bar x
Density of steel dimension in metres

= 0.008 x 0.008 x 1.0 x 7850 **= 0.5024 kgs/m**

**2.
Weight of Square Steel bar in kgs/m = **area of bar x Density of
steel dimension in mm** **

= 8 x 8 x 0.00785 **= 0.5024 kgs/m**

__According
to thumb rule:__

**3.
Weight of Square Steel bar in kgs/m = **Area of bar / 127 dimension
in mm

= (8 x 8) / 127 **=
0.503 kgs/m**

**4.
Weight of Square Steel bar in kgs/Ft = **Area of bar / 416.56

= (8 x 8) / 416.56**
= 0.1536 kgs/ Ft**

** **

**Weight Calculation Of
Flat plate Bar?**

**Solution
:- **

**Therefore,** 1"
= 25.4mm - 25.4 x 2 = 50.8mm

Section of Flat plate = 50.8mm x 2mm

**Weight
of Steel bar in kgs/m **= Area of bar / 127

= (50.8 x 2) / 127

**=
0.8 kgs/ m**

Length of Flat plate = 8'

**Therefore,** 1’
= 0.3048m – 8 x 0.3048 = 2.4384m

**Weight
of Flat plate **= 2.4384 x 0.8 =**1.95072 kgs**

**Weight
of Steel bar in kgs/Ft **= Area of bar / 416.56

= (50.8 x 2) / 416.56

**=
0.243 kgs/ Ft**

Length of Flat plate = 8'

**Weight
of Flat plate = **0.243 x 8' = **1.944 kgs**

**Weight Calculation Of Angle
Plate Bar?**

**Solution:**

Breadth – 2” + 2” = 4”

**Therefore,**
1" = 25.4mm - 25.4 x 4 = 101.6mm

Section of Flat plate = 101.6mm x 2mm

**Weight
of Steel bar in kgs/m = Area of bar / 127**

= (101.6 x 2) / 127

**=
1.6 kgs/ m**

Length of Flat plate = 12'

Therefore 1’ = 0.3048m – 12 x 0.3048 = 3.65m

Weight of Flat plate = 3.65m x 1.6 = **5.8 kgs**

**Weight
of Steel bar in kgs/Ft = Area of bar / 416.56**

= (101.6 x 2) / 416.56 = **0.487 kgs/Ft**

Length of Flat plate = 12'

Weight of Flat plate = 0.487 x 12' = **5.84400 kgs**

** **

**Weight Calculation Of Hollow
Square Pipe?**

**Solution:**

L = (L+B) x 2 = (2+2) x 2 = 8"

**Therefore,**
1" = 25.4mm - 8 x 25.4 = 203.2mm

Thickness of pipe = 2mm

Section of Flat plate = 203.2mm x 2mm

How to calculate steel structures weight

**Weight
of Steel bar in kgs/m = Area of bar / 127**

= (203.2 x 2) / 127

**= 3.2
kgs/ m**

Length of Flat plate = 18'

Therefore 1’ = 0.3048m – 18 x 0.3048 = 5.4864m

Weight of Flat plate = 5.4864m x 3.2 = **17.55 kgs**

**Weight
of Steel bar in kgs/Ft = Area of bar / 416.56**

= (203.2 x 2) / 416.56

**=
0.975 kgs/ Ft**

Length of Hollow square pipe = 18'

Weight of Hollow square pipe = 0.975 x 18' = **17.55 kgs**
