Do you know how to calculate structural steel weights?It is very easy
If it is a Rolled section like Beam, Channel, Rod, Square, Angles & Flats
WEIGHT = LENGTH X UNIT WEIGHT
If it is a Plate OR Sheet
WEIGHT = LENGTH X WIDTH X THICKNESS X 7.85
UOM (Unit Of Measurement) for Length and width are Meter , For thickness it is in MM (Milli Meter)
7.85 is Specific Gravity of Steel
If ISMB-600 length is 12550mm
Weight = 12550/1000 * 123.1 (Unit weigt of ISMB-600 per Meter is 123.00Kg/Meter)
If Plate 16mm thickness, 1250mm width, 12500mm length
The same formuls can be applied for other materials also, Specific gravity should be used accordingly.
