    section size

    Mark Greenwell



      I am going to create a sketch and save it as a weldment profile.


      The section is a 600 600 x 40 square hollow section. (Jumbo Section).


      The profile is no bother, what I am trying to find out is what are the inside and outside corner radius for this size section.


      We have a section table which only goes up to 400 x 400 x 16 which shows inside radius of 32mm and outside radius 48mm (which is 2 & 3 times thickness).

      So I could make this section radius 80mm & 120mm, however I cannot find any info to say this is correct.


      The smaller the section required then this 2 & 3 times formula changes so for example a 220 x 220 x 6 will ask for 12mm outside 6mm inside (1 & 2 times thickness).


      So does any one have a metric chart / or know showing Jumbo section internal / external radius.
