Difference Between "I" Beam & "H" Beam

From the previous posts, all you may be familier with "I" Beam & "H" Beam. Let us see what is the difference between them.

Both are structural beam of rolled steel having a shape whose cross section resembles the letter H; and Letter I (an ‘H’ Turned through 90 degree). The H-beam has relatively wider flanges than the I beam, however an "I" beam has tapered edges towards the centre rib called Web.

It is the difference between the widths (Flange) by height (Web) ratio. In the case of H beams the width of the flange would be equal to or more than the height of the cross section. In the case of I section, the height of the cross section would be higher than the width of the flange.

In general H-beams are better than I-beams are very subjective. Since they are usually heavier and weight per running meter also more.

However it is most important to use the optimal beam configuration for the application. While selecting the beam, the thickness of the centre web is most important since this is what takes the brunt of the force. Good construction demands structural beams that more than carry maximum loads including factor of safety while using the minimum weight of steel.

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and
