STEEL EQUAL ANGLE SECTION PROPERTIES

Steel equal angle section properties table.

Section properties data are given for the X axis and Y axis. Additional data are given for the Z axis, which is defined as the axis having the smallest value of radius of gyration. The column tends to buckle about the Z-axis.
