Properties of sections of solids

Most solid beams put to practical use have a particular cross-sectional shape , because each such shape has a unique mechanical property, which help the beam to perform its function without failing.

here are some of them:

I-section: has good resistance against axial tensile and compressive loads, though it is weaker against , torsional forces. the best example is the connecting rod in the I.C engine.

circular section: has good resistance against torsional loads, and thus used as shafts.

so what are the properties of other such sections
