Because the cross sections can be so different it would be tough to judge any one type of beam from a table. Steel weighs about 490 lbs per cubic ft or 7.8 grams per cubic cm.

If you know the cross sectional area of the beam you're interested in you can calculate the total weight.

Try the link below, it is a calculator that you actually install on your machine, it gives the weights for all sorts of profiles, and in different materials too.

Best of luck.

If you can get your hands on a "Machinists Handbook" you'll find the tables in there for all types of beams. You just need to know the basic dimensions and web thickness, it will get you real close. Try the public library, because I don't think you'll find it on line. It is about $65 to purchase and had dat on everything. stuff like "eye" bolts strengths in straight and angular pulls. Chain and hooh data, good resource

The American Institute of Steel Construction publishes standard shape tables for all hot rolled shapes available in the US. (AISC.org) You can also abtain this information from the U.S. producers of Structural Steel shapes, NucorYmato, txiChaparral, and Steel Dynamics. Bethelehem and United States Steel used to publish shape tables but neither one of them produce hot rolled structural shapes any more.
