How do I choose the right ISMB size for my project?

The altogether process of choosing the right size of ISMB is based on basic mechanical structure as follows:

  • The first step is that you need know the ISMB load bearing capacity or loading details of ISMB
  • Second, step is to draw bending moment picture for the given load and through it you will find the maximum ratio of bending moment (mention it as “M”) that the ISMB is predicted to experience.
  • Choose a general size of ISMB from its standard table.
  • Detect the area moment of inactivity (mention it as “I”) of the selected ISMB.
  • Acquire the beam depth (mention it as “d”) of the selected ISMB.
  • Lastly, utilize the below given formula for calculating the stress developed (mention as “f”) in the ISMB

  • f/(d/2)=M/ I
  • f - Bending stress
  • M - Moment at the object axis
  • d - Perpendicular distance to the object axis
  • I - the area moment of inactivity about the object axis

Compare the calculated value of the bending stress with the yield stress of ISMB in order to check the safety factor of your structure.

It is important to consult with structural engineer for an absolute calculations and expertise advice.

How do ISMBs compare to other structural steel beams?

  • ISMB is known as Indian Standard Medium Weight Beam.
  • ISHB is known as Indian Standard Heavy Beams which is structural steel type beam used mainly for construction and engineering. It is manufactured according to Indian standard which gives high load compared to ISMB.
  • ISLB is known as Indian Standard Light Weight Beam which is also designed as per Indian Standards for the applications which needs lighter burden of weight. As compared to ISMB and ISHB it gives a lighter option to structural use. Hence it is use in light structural industries applications and residential. And it bears less load compared to ISMB.
  • ISA is the short form of Indian Standard Angle, which is a structural steel in L-shape. It is usually referred as angle section and commonly used for framing, bracing and supporting structures.

What factors affect the weight of an ISMB?

It is affected by various different factors including the beam sizes in depth, width, and thickness. The material which is used in manufacturing beam its weight also plays an important role, because heavy material outcome will be heavier beams. The beam length will also affect the weight so as larger the beams will be the heavier the weight of the beam will be. The process of manufacturing can also affect the also affect the weight.

Safety Considerations When Working With ISMB beams

To ensure the safety of worker and stop accidents while handling ISMB beams while installation process. There are various essential safety measures to examine.

  • Personal Protective Equipment: It is important for all workers who are handling ISMB beams must wear suitable PPE, such as hard hats, gloves and steel-toed boots. All this protective equipment will protect the workers against risks like sharp beam edges or falling beams.
  • Correct lifting techniques: The workers should use proper lifting techniques while handling ISMB beams to avert stains or injuries. Training should be given to workers for lifting heavy objects using their legs, not their backs and they should stay away from twisting or jerking moving while lifting.
  • Suitable training: The workers must be given adequate training and should be compulsory. Only trained and experienced workers must be allowed to handle ISMB beams while installation. They should be knowledgeable in the weight and dimension of the beams, also with proper handling techniques. Unqualified workers should always be examined by someone with expertise in doing its installation.
  • Secure storage: It is important to keep secure storage for it so as to prevent accidents. It should always be stacked on a flat and level surface with precise support beneath to stop it from dropping down. And if it is been stored vertically then it must be secured with straps to stop them from falling.
  • Clear and effective communication: It is important to give effective and clear communication to the worker while handling and installing ismb beam. The workers should know how to give clear hand signals or verbal instruction to organize movements and ensure everyone whosoever is working in that particular condition should be aware about their situations.
  • Inspection and maintenance: Before using or installing beam it should be deeply inspected to check if there are any damages or defects. In case any beam indication signs of cracks, bend or others defect issues than it must not be used.
  • Adequate planning: Proper planning must be done for safe installation. These include of analyzing the site conditions, deciding the suitable tools for handling or lifting, and always make a detailed plan of installation.

Formula and Calculation for ISMB Beams

The weight of ISMB beam can be determined using the following formula:

Weight (kg/m) = ((D^2 * B) – (d^2 * b)) * L * W

Where:

  • D = Depth of the beam (mm)
  • L = Length of the beam (m)
  • b = Width of the web (mm)
  • B = Width of the flange (mm)
  • W = Density of the material (kg/m^3)
  • d = Depth of the web (mm)
