Weight = Volume x Density
Volume: The volume of the angle bar can be calculated using the formula: Volume = (Width x Thickness x Length)
Density: The density of mild steel is approximately 7850 kg/m³.
So, the weight of the angle bar can be calculated as: Weight = Width x Thickness x Length x Density
Now, let’s say you have a mild steel angle bar with dimensions: Width = 50 mm Thickness = 6 mm Length = 2000 mm (2 meters)
First, convert all dimensions to meters: Width = 50 mm = 0.05 m Thickness = 6 mm = 0.006 m Length = 2000 mm = 2 m
Now, substitute these values into the formula: Weight = 0.05 m x 0.006 m x 2 m x 7850 kg/m³ = 0.588 kg
So, the weight of the angle bar would be approximately 0.588 kg.
A mild steel angle bar, commonly referred to as an ‘angle iron,’ is a long iron or steel bar that is bent at a right angle along its length. The two equal or unequal sides of the bar form the right angle. These angle bars are made from mild steel, which is a type of carbon steel with a low carbon content. This makes the steel more ductile, malleable and easier to weld, compared to high carbon steel. Mild steel angle bars are widely used in construction and engineering because of their strength, flexibility and ease of welding. They are used for making frames, brackets and other structural applications. The thickness and size of the bar can vary depending on its intended use, and they are often available in standard lengths, such as 6 meters or 12 meters, but can also be cut to custom sizes.
Mild steel angle bars can be bent, but it requires special equipment and techniques to do so without damaging the bar. Mild steel is relatively ductile and malleable, which makes it easier to bend compared to high carbon steels. However, because of the right angle shape of the angle bar, bending it can be more challenging compared to flat bars.
The inside corner of the bar experiences compression, while the outside corner experiences tension during the bending process. This can cause distortion or even cracking if not done properly.
To bend a mild steel angle bar, it is recommended to use a section bending machine, also known as a profile bending machine or angle roll bending machine. This machine can apply controlled pressure to bend the angle bar without causing distortion or cracks.
It is also essential to consider the thickness and size of the angle bar, as thicker and larger bars will require more force to bend. In some cases, it may be necessary to heat the angle bar to make it more pliable and easier to bend. However, heating the steel can alter its mechanical properties, so it should be done carefully and may require post-bend heat treatment to restore the desired properties.
