METRIC STEEL UNEQUAL ANGLE SECTION PROPERTIES

Metric steel unequal angle section properties calculator for second moment of area, elastic section modulus and radius of gyration calculation per EN 10056-1.

EN 10056-1 standard defines requirements for nominal dimensions of metric hot-rolled equal and unequal leg angles. This standard does not apply unequal angles rolled from stainless steel.
