Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

Hi all
 i got a drawings for antenna tower made of steel pipes as main legs and angles as diagonals and Horizontals.
 the main question is that i found the size of some angles followed by Indication (SL V) what this indication refer to?

RE: Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

short leg vertical

RE: Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

One more related abbreviation is LLV (Long Leg Vertical)


RE: Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

Two other abbreviations often seen are SLO (Short Legs Outstanding) and LLO (Long Legs Outstanding)


RE: Abbreviation for steel angles dimension

Not mentioned yet probably because it is too obvious is LLBB (long leg back to back) and SLBB (short leg back to back.)  This is the way the ASD manual describes double angles but without the abbreviations.  It's nice to know the others too.
