What is Double-C Steel Structure?

Among the many benefits of double-C steel structures is its durability. Double-C steel structures are also known to be more aesthetically pleasing than regular steel structures. This article will introduce you to the different types of Double-C steel structures, including Plates, Angles, Channels, Girders, and Beams. You will also be able to find more information about them by following the links below. Ultimately, you'll have a better understanding of the structure's characteristics.

Plates

Double-C steel structure plates are used in a variety of construction applications and are commonly referred to by their thickness in inches. These plates are typically used as connections between structural members and as component parts of built-up structures. They are easy to cut to specific thicknesses and can be rolled to square edges. In addition, they can be fabricated to fit custom requirements. Here are some examples of applications where Double-C is an excellent choice.

Angles

There are two types of angles in a Double-C steel structure: unequal leg and equal leg angles. Each type has different properties. The width of the leg should be equal and the thickness of the angle's legs must be equal. Angles are commonly used in secondary framing and lintels. They are also used in light duty applications. However, there are some important differences between these two types of angles.



Channels

A structural steel channel is a hot-rolled product that has a C-shape cross-section, a straight back, and two perpendicular extensions. The channels may be straight, or have short inward-facing lips for extra strength. They may have holes for bolting or a slight ridge on the back. A double-C steel structure is often called a "double-C" steel structure.

Girders

The girder is the main support beam of a structure. It supports other smaller beams and is used to support the entire structure. A girder is made of steel, concrete, stainless steel, or a combination of materials. There are several different types of girders, including single and multi-piece constructions. Below is a brief description of each type of girder. Read on to learn more about the differences between them.

S-shape

The S-shape Double-C Steel structure is a versatile option for truss applications. Its X-Y section is limited in application due to its asymmetrical geometry. The welded connections are preferred over bolted ones, however. Welded connections have good axial and flexural capacities, and are often used as bracing members for trusses.



C-shape

The Double-C steel structure is a structural design with a "C" shape. The "C" refers to the steel channels used in beams, built-up columns, bracing, and secondary framing. The flanges of the steel channels are usually labeled "W-12", "S-27," or "C-27." The dimensions of the pipe are measured in nominal depth along the web, and the wall thickness is indicated in pounds per linear foot.



C-shaped

A double-C steel structure is C-shaped, with the C-shaped portion of the structural section attached to the top flange. A double-C structure is not as common as a single-C structure, and structural steel fabrication companies need to be able to produce C-shaped structures accurately. The BeamCut tool can help improve the overall quality of the structure and speed up production. For more information on BeamCut, please contact us today.



S-shaped

The S-shaped double-C steel structure has a number of benefits over the W-shape. The S-shape has a relatively narrow range of sizes, and it does not go up to the size of the W-shape. In general, an architect or engineer would not select an S-shape over a W-shape. Nevertheless, the S-shape is still included in the Manual, and it is often referred to as an "H-pile."
