8.7.12 | Aluminum Structural Member Design

This webinar addresses the design of aluminum structural members, and is based on the 2010 Specification for Aluminum Structures, published by the Aluminum Association. The strength of aluminum members in axial tension, axial compression, bending, and shear is addressed. Mechanical properties, including yield strength, ultimate strength, and modulus of elasticity for commonly used aluminum alloy-tempers and products are explained. Safety and resistance factors for building and bridge structures are discussed.
