SECTIONAL PROPERTIES CALCULATOR - RECTANGULAR HOLLOW STRUCTURAL SECTIONS (TUBES)
Rectangular hollow section properties calculator has been developed to calculate cross scetion area, weight, second moment of area, section modulus and radius of gyration of hollow rectangular tubes.
Hollow structural sections are metal profiles with square or rectangular tube section. They are also known as rectangular steel tubes. ASTM A500 is the most common steel specification for hollow structural section in North America. This specification is for cold formed welded and seamless carbon steel tubing in round, square and rectangular shapes. ASTM A501 is another standard for hot formed steel tubing. Hollow rectangular sections are used in structural applications such as structural supports and building columns.
