OK. Fair enough. Without sounding too smart, I think you confirmed what I was trying to say.

I was concerned that a lot of aluminium is nowhere as ultimately strong as even water pipe. Alum with the same yield as water pipe would, I imagine, be quite a strong alloy compared to the local hardware's stuff. So although the Elastic Mod may be the same for each alloy (I know steel alters surprisingly little over the range), the yield strength is way different.

As you say, it depends on whether you need failure strength or some nominated bend under the allowed load.
