CorTen

Anyone know what a square foot of that weighs? The same stuff used in ocean going containers.

A square foot? Indeterminate. It's steel - figure 500#/CF. Take it from there with the gauge/thickness.

Easy. Square foot weighs nothing. You need that third dimension ;)

As Rico posted, CorTen is steel (high manganese / "weathering" steel).
The number he gave, 500 lbs per cubic foot is a good one to remember.
What are you trying to figure out?
Here is a spec that describes (rather cryptically) the construction of one type of ocean containers. http://www.steinecker-container.de/container/Container2/Spez-Container/Spez_high%20cube20.pdf
Roof material: 2mm. >>>>> 3.7 lbs per sq ft (corrugated shape not considered) Side walls: 1.6mm >>>>> 2.9 lbs per sq ft (corrugated shape not considered)
