So Chris, what values would you use?
The levels specified for the particular weld metal and base metal in the Aluminum Association Structural Guide. The strengths for the particular base metal tempers are meaningless for the weld metal and the HAZ. I'd use the specification values and wouldn't guess. Aluminum is pretty good stuff, but it's not steel--don't try to adapt the steel specification to something that is absolutely not steel. Plenty of info in the ASCE Transactions, too, but the AA specification defines the standard of care.
