RE: Aluminum

Try the Aluminum Design Manual - Aluminum Association.

Go to the bookstore link.

There are some similarities...from a alloy standpoint 6061-T6 comes to mind as a common grade alloy used for structures.  It depends on what characteristics/applications your looking at.

This should get you started.

Hope this helps.

Before I spend lots of time searching, can anyone give me basic information
about Aluminum pipe design?

References (book or web) are actually preferred to raw numbers.

 - Available sizes:  Do they match standard steel pipe?  HSS?
 - Yield Stress - What are some common grades?

Thanks for your help,
