Re: Aluminum

Thanks for the quick responses.  Also, I got more information - a guy in our
office is checking some handrail shop drawings, and wanted to verify sizes.

The material is 6061-T6, and I found an older reference in the office that
lists the allowable bending stress for tubes to be 24 ksi.  Does this sound

FYI, the AA "Aluminum Design Manual" is $210 at the Aluminum Association web
