Let me take a look at your question a bit closer

Expert:  walkereng replied 9 months ago.

Sorry for the delay.

Can you get me the following dimensions to the nearest 1/8":

1. Beam depth

2. Beam flange width

3. Beam flange thickness

With these numbers, I can look up the closest beam in the AISC tables and get you a beam weight.
