I'm thinking you'll have no problem. As well...track down Bill Buttermore.. Something tells me...he'* got background in this area.

Or Bill Wren and John Wikoff. Maybe even the bullet. We deal with this stuff daily.

Are you looking for the raw data (formula), or the procedure to determine it?

I just need the published/handbook number for it.

I have already calculated our expermental value, we are supposed to compare it to what is published for 2024-T4 aluminum

our teacher gave us this:
http://www.matweb.com/search/Specifi...ssnum=MA2024T4

I have to say though, its interesting to compare between what that textbook says and what the site says about 2024-T4

Its strange it says data points with AA are not for design.
The type of text I got that out of is Machine Theroy and Design.
