Summary
Despite its unique and enormous advantages, most engineers fail to consider using aluminum, even in structural situations where its strength, light weight, and corrosion resistance should make it the metal of choice. Aluminum Structures: A Guide to Their Specifications and Design offers engineers, designers, and architects a comprehensive guide to designing aluminum structures and, consequently, a rare opportunity to expand their design capabilities quickly. This book's broad coverage includes the properties of aluminum, its structural performance in beams, columns and members, aluminum fabrication, welding and mechanical connections, and its inspection and testing. Special attention is paid to those features of aluminum that differentiate it from other structural materials, most particularly steel
