By J. Randolph Kissell;Robert L. Ferry

Technical suggestions and concept for designing aluminum structuresAluminum buildings, moment variation 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 variation of the Aluminum layout guide, it presents quickly look-up tables for layout calculations; examples of lately outfitted aluminum structures-from structures to bridges; and a comparability of aluminum to different structural fabrics, quite metal.

T2 Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process, cold-worked, and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are cold-worked to improve strength after cooling from an elevated temperature shaping process, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits. T3 Solution heat-treated, cold-worked, and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. Applies to products that are cold-worked to improve strength after solution heat treatment, or in which the effect of cold work in flattening or straightening is recognized in mechanical property limits, for example, 2024-T3 sheet.

This designation is specific only when the period of natural aging is indicated, for example, W –12 hour. 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.
