RE: Aluminum Allowable

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
    I use the " Aluminum Design Manual" put out by The Aluminum Association.
There are many different types and grades of aluminum.  You need to know the
Alloy the tube is made of to determine an allowable stress.  If you can
determine the alloy I can help on Monday.

Subject: Aluminum Allowable


Can anyone tell me where to find the allowable axial  and flexural stress
for aluminum tubing? I have a 1" sqr tube with 6' unbraced length with about
10ksi axial stress other members with the same length have a combined 4.5ksi
axial stress with .95ksi a flexural stress.

TIA,
Rand
