ANGLES: Angle supports are measured in inches with the width of the
longer leg given first. The third dimension is the thickness of the leg. You
may use angles singly or in combinations of two or four angles to form
members. You can also use angles to connect main members or parts of
members together. The shape of a cross section of an angle is in the form of
the letter L.
TEES: A structural tee is a standard I- or H-beam cut through the center of
the web, thus forming two tee shapes from each beam. The dimensions of
the tee are preceded by the letter T.
Figure 4-11 shows the profile of a tee.
