With reference to civil structures, what are C-sections and I-sections ? When are they used ? Are they used typically in renovation work and do they add significantly to construction costs ?

Dear Madhusudhanan: C-sections and I-sections, made of mild steel are usually used as a load bearing arrangement especially during renovation and nowadays, increasing in new construction as well. Here are the images of both of these types:
C-section: http://tinyurl.com/pnqzh87
I-section: http://tinyurl.com/l99cmjx  
Do take help of a structural engineer before using them in construction. 
I hope it helps.

Post subject: With reference to civil structures, what are C-s...

thanks, Mr.Abhishek.  In  a sense, are these fabricated structures made of mild steel ? The related question was, does it add considerably to cost of renovation.    Is it directly related to the price of steel ?  Will take the help of a structural engineer as per your advise certainly !

Dear Madhusudhanan: Yes, these are made of mild steel. During renovation, they are used where they create an easy solution to provide support/bear load of the existing structure. They are not super-expensive and have a direct relation to the price of steel.
I hope it helps.
