Universal Steel Beams and Joists

A universal steel beam is used in construction to carry bending and shear loads horizontally and is spanned by joists. The term ‘universal beam’ is used due to the versatility of these beams in building.

Steel beams and joists are force-resistant due to their ability to bend rather than buckle, but they are not capable of withstanding a large degree of torsion and have little resistance to bidirectional twisting.

Universal steel beams are usually made of structural steel, as are the joists that connect them.
