How to figure out how much the mild steel channel weighs?

Mild steel channels are U-shaped steel structures that can be described by the size and thickness of their sides. Mild steel channels have two parts: the flange at the bottom and the web at the top. The flange is the horizontal part at the bottom, and the web is the vertical part at the top.

It has sides that are not the same length. For example, a Mild Steel channel has sides that are 100 mm wide and 50 mm wide, and it is 5 mm thick.

### MS channel size

We know that MS channel consists of flange and web, it comes in several sizes ranging between 75×40×4.8 mm to 400× 100× 8.8 mm.

The weight of the MS channel is calculated in Kg per meter or in Kg per foot. Clearly higher dimensions will have higher weighted values and lower dimensions have a lower weight value.

For example, an MS channel has a dimension of 100×50×5 mm

### Mild Steel Channel Unit Weight

Unit weight of MS channel calculated by formula weight = volume × density & density of steel is 7850 Kg/m3 and volume is calculated by multiplying web height × flange width × thickness.

### Mild Steel Channel Weight in kg per Meter

MS Web Volume

MS Channel Size = 100×50×5 mm

Web Depth = 100 mm =0.1m

Web Thickness = 5 mm=0.005 m

Web Length = 1 m

Volume = l×b×h

Volume = 0.1×0.005×1 m3

Web Volume = 0.0005 m3

• Two flange Volume

MS Channel Size = 100×50×5 mm

Flange Width = 50_5 mm =45mm=0.045 m

Flange Thickness = 5 mm=0.005 m

Flange Length = 1 m

Volume = l×b×h

Volume = 0.045×0.005×1 m3

Flange Volume = 0.000225 m3

Two Flange Volume = 0.000225×2 m3

Two Flange Volume of = 0.000450 m3

### MS channel Total volume

Total volume = volume of flange+ volume of web

Total volume = 0.000450 +0.0005 m3

Total volume =0.000950m3

4) Weight of MS channel

Weight = volume× density

Volume = 0.000950 m3

Density of steel = 7850 kg/m3

Weight = 0.000950m3×7850 kg/m3

Weight of MS channel = 7.45 kg/m

Ans: MS channel unit weight will be 7.45 kg
