Technical suggestions and idea for designing aluminum structuresAluminum constructions, moment version demonstrates how robust, light-weight, corrosion-resistant aluminum opens up a complete new global of layout chances for engineering and structure execs. Keyed to the revised Specification for Aluminum buildings of the 2000 version of the Aluminum layout guide, it presents quickly look-up tables for layout calculations; examples of lately equipped aluminum structures-from structures to bridges; and a comparability of aluminum to different structural fabrics, relatively metal.

150 mm]), minimum orders range around 500 lb [200 kg]; for larger or hollow shapes, minimum orders are about 1,000 to 2,000 lb [500 to 1,000 kg]. When smaller quantities are needed, they can be obtained from distributors or warehouses. Die charges range around several hundred dollars with typically at least six week lead times. 50 WORKING WITH ALUMINUM Extrusion Tolerances Standard extrusion cross-sectional dimensional tolerances have been established and are published by the Aluminum Association.

T Thermally treated to produce stable tempers other than F, O, or H. Applies to products that are thermally treated, with or without supplementary strain-hardening, to produce stable tempers. The ‘‘T’’ is always followed by one or more numbers. Strain-Hardened Tempers For strain-hardened tempers, the first digit of the number following the ‘‘H’’ denotes: H1 Strain-hardened only. Applies to products that are strain-hardened to obtain the desired strength without supplementary thermal treatment. The number following this designation indicates the degree of strain-hardening, for example, 1100-H14.

Applies to products that are cold-worked to improve strength after artificial aging, for example, 6262-T9 nuts. T10 Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, cold-worked, and then artificially aged. Applies to products that are cold-worked to improve strength, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits. Additional digits may be added to designations T1 through T10 for variations in treatment. Stress-relieved tempers follow various conventions, which are described below.
