Built Up Section
Name"- Built up section
Description : - These are members made up by a fabricator from two or more standard sections. Examples of common built-up sections are shown in Fig. 2.2. Built-up members are specified by the designer when the desired properties or configuration cannot be obtained in a single hotrolled section. Built-up sections can be bolted or welded. Welded members, in general, are less expensive because much less handling is required in the shop and because of more efficient utilization of material. The clean lines of welded members also produce a better appearance.
