I am trying to work out a conversion formula that would get me from size
of channel to weight per metre.

Details I have to hand is that the channel is 250 x 90 pfc

After much research I am told that the base of the channel is 250mm and is 15mm thick and the sides are 8mm thick(varying) and the channel is 1metre long. The answer is 35.5Kg per mtr. WhaT I want to know is how is that
worked out.

I am not sure what you mean when you said "250 x 90 pfc"

You mention the sides of the channel are 8mm thick, but do not mention their height. That is the only piece of information missing that I would need to create the conversion.

The Base Is 250 And The Sides Are 90

Sounds like you have a square section channel, with the inside of the channel being 250 (base) x 90 (height). If you draw this up, you have three sections, the base is 250mm wide by 15mm thick. The sides are 105mm long by 8mm thick. If you work out the volume of these, then multiply by the density of the steel, you would get the wieght. The volume for a meter would therefore be (long, but simple calc) 5,430 cubic centimeters, or 5.430 litres. 5.43 is just multiplied by the density to give a weight. I think steel has a density of about 7, which would give you 38kg per meter. I can't see your original post, but divide it by 5.43 to give density. Or by the correct volume if I've missunderstood the dimensions.

If you dont add the base thickness to the side width, the results come out a bit closer to what he was looking for.

250 mm * 15 mm = 3750 mm²
(90 mm * 8 mm) * 2 sides = 1440 mm²

(3750 mm² + 1440 mm²) = 5190 mm²

5190 mm² * 1000 mm = 5190000 mm³ = 5.19 liter

According to Reade.com the density of rolled steel is 7.93 and cast steel is 7.85.

5.19 liter * 7.93 kg/l = 41.1567 kilograms
5.19 liter * 7.85 kg/l = 40.7415 kilograms

Though the density data I found gives a result even further from what you were looking for. Using your estimate of a density of 7 would give an answer close what to he has.

5.19 liter * 7 kg/l = 36.33 kilograms

It is possible that the "varying" means that the 8mm wall thickness is a maximum, rather than an average. If this is so, then you need to get an average for this dimension.

The other possibility is that the 250mm and 90mm are outside measurements, and the channel is cut into this? Original poster, has this helped?

I suppose we should get a hand drawn picture of the channel with the measurements indicated. That would remove doubt.

Crudely Steel at 1mm thick = 7.85 kg/m2, therefore
Steel 15mm thick = 7.85 x 15 = 117.75
Steel 8mm thick = 7.85 x 8 = 62.8

The base (web) of your channel is 250mm therefore the weight is calculated as so - 117.75 (for 15 thick) x .250 = 29.44kgs

The sides (flanges) of your channel is 75mm (90-15 web) therefore the weight is calculated as so - 62.8 (for 8 thick) x .075 x 2 (because there are 2 flanges) = 9.42 kgs

Total 38.8kgs/m

This is not an exact weight because of mill rolling tolerances but is a good guide. Hope this helps.

Hello I have a similar problem. My conversion consist's of varying guages of copper wire to be converted to meters from KG's. For example I have a chart that states 22awg(7Bit) copper wire is as follows. Kilogram/kilometer is 3.17 as 50kilograms = 15,773Meters. I was wandering I you may be able to help apply this info to create a base formula or equation to apply to any quage of wire. As I said I do have a list of KG/KM. Thanx in advance Dennis

hi, everybody

I have the same question of the weight of some angle steel per meter. I found this website metrosteelfl.com/angle.html This may be helpful, but it is the standard of America, not Australia.

Anyone can find the same website as this conversion table for us?

Thanks.

On the centerline of the legs, they are each 47 mm
so
2*47 mm * 6 mm x 1 m = 0.000 564 m³
Density is about 7.9 t/m³ (7900 kg/m³), so 4.45 kg per one meter length.

Working in centimeters, to use density as 7.9 g/cm³
1) Subtract half thickness from each leg for a center line average. Cross section is ((12.7 cm - 0.6 cm) +6.4 cm - 0.6 cm))* 1.2 cm = 21.48 cm²

2) a 1 m length is 100 cm, so 2148 cm³. Multiplying by 7.9 g/cm³ gives 16969 g/m or, rounded, 17 kg/m.

Volume in cm is 250 cm x 70 cm x1 cm = 17500 cm³
at 7.9 g/cm³, 138250 g or 138.25 kg.
Note that different grades of steel can vary slightly from 7.9 g/cm³, so don't expect 5 digit accuracy.

Why use mixed units. Approximating 2" as 51 mm, the legs on centerline are each 44 mm (51 - 14/2)

Expressing all dimensions in cm
2 legs x 4.4 cm x 1.4 cm x 600 cm x 7.85 g/cm³ = 58027 g = 58.027 kg

You can do the other the same way 1.5 in = 38 mm (approx)
