square tubing loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am an aspiring engineer, first year undergraduate, designing a table using 2" x 2" square tubing as legs. I would like to know how to determine the lightest carbon steel material (thinnest wall) capable of supporting loads of up to 300 lbs., 400 lbs... Shall I refer to charts? Should I know a formula for calculating the load limit using material thickness as the variable? where might I find formulas for different types of material, for example round tubing, angle iron, square bar? Thank you in advance. It is to my great advantage to be allowed to listen in to the conversations of you all.                                          skoontz801(--nospam--at)
