1 in = 25.4 mm 1 lb/ft2 = 4.88 kg/m2

Steel sheets and also plates are typical stocked in 36”, 48”, and 60” widths and 96”, 120”, and also 144” lengths.

You are watching: Weight per square foot of steel

instance - load of stole Plate

The weight of a1 inch thick 36" (3 ft) x 96" (8 ft) stole plate v weight 40.8 lb/ft2 (from table above) have the right to be calculated as

W = (40.8 lb/ft2) (3 ft) (8 ft)

= 979 lb

### Calculating steel Plate Weight

Weight per sq. Feet of hot rolled mild stole plates have the right to be calculated as

W = 40.8 t (1)

where

W = weight of steel plate (lb/ft2)

t = plate thickness (in)
