Aluminum 6063-T52 allowable bending stress

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I need to do a handrail calculation for 6063-T52 aluminum pipe.  I have an NAAMM publication that tells me that the design bending stress for 6063-T5 and 6063 T532 is 11.5 ksi and that it is to be reduced to 8 ksi within 1" of welds.  Do any of you know if T52 would have the same design values?
