Shaped steel is one of the iron and steel materials widely used in the construction industry because of its good bearing capacity and high durability. There are many types of section steel, the most common of which are I-shaped steel, U-shaped steel, V-shaped steel and H-shaped steel.

Each type of steel section will have different structures and applications for each project. Below are the specific applications of each type of steel section:

U-shaped steel: steel with a cross-section similar to a U-shaped section. U-shaped steel has a flat belly and wide wings, so it is convenient to connect with other components. U-shaped steel is often used as beams in bending, roof purlins for oblique bending or can also be used as columns, to form bridges (when assembled into symmetrical cross-section bars).

I-shaped steel: steel with the same cross-section as I-shaped. I-beam is mainly used to make beams under bending, the stiffness in the horizontal direction is very large compared to the longitudinal direction. It is also possible to use steel I to make columns (it is necessary to increase the longitudinal stiffness by expanding the wings or joining 2 I-shaped steels together).

H-shaped steel: steel with the same cross-section as H-shaped, with a longer side length than I-shaped steel. The outstanding feature of H-steel is its high hardness and extremely large bearing capacity. H steel products are very diverse in design and size listed below the product section.

V-shaped steel (angle steel): steel with a cross-section similar to a V-shape. If the edges are regular, it is called V steel, if the edges are irregular, it is called L steel. Angle steel is often used as a force-bearing bar such as a bar of truss, connection. with other steels to create composite structures such as joining with steel plates into columns with hollow section, I-beam cross-section. Angle steel is the most used steel in steel structure.
