New Larger HP Shapes Available
Posted by Tasha Weiss on February 17, 2011 at 9:57 AM.

Nucor-Yamato Steel Co., an AISC member, is now producing HP16 and HP18 sections, the first new H-pile sizes in decades. The new sections of HP16 and HP18 – the country’s largest H-piles ever produced – give engineers and contractors a more economical way to construct deep foundations for buildings and bridges. Another possible benefit of these shapes: using them as columns in building construction.


Dimensions and properties of the H16 and H18 sections are now available on the Nucor Yamato website and will be included in the AISC 14th Edition Steel Construction Manual, scheduled to be released later this year. To download the information now, visit, select Sales Info, then Product Catalog, or simply click here. HP dimensions and properties are on pages 38 and 39 of the PDF document.
