Re: Box Girders and 6000 Flat Car Loading

An estimate:

Modern 12" steel channel weighs about 21#/foot.  So a 28' channel is 300# or so.  The other side channel is also 300#, and the webbing is probably aot less than one channel. 

But adding those plus a little extra for the ends, call it 1,000# or 1/2 ton per column.  So maybe this is just a single car load, as 20 would make a 10 ton load?
