The strength calculation of aluminum square pipe involves many aspects, and the following points clearly summarize its calculation method:

**1. Calculation of shaft strength**

Calculation formula: The axial strength of the square tube (that is, the failure axial load of the square tube under pressure or tension) can be calculated by the formula F = σ × A.

F stands for axial load.

σ represents the allowable stress of a square tube material.

A represents the area of the square tube.

**2. Calculation of section area**

For an aluminum square tube with A square section, the section area A can be calculated by b × h.

b represents the side length of the square tube.

h represents the height of the square tube (in a square cross-section, b and h are usually equal).

**3. Moment of inertia calculation**

The moment of inertia is a physical quantity describing the resistance of a square tube beam to deformation under the action of torque, and its calculation formula is I = (b × h³) / 12.

This is very important for evaluating the bending resistance of aluminum square tubes.

**4. Calculation of bending coefficient**

The bending coefficient is an index to measure the bending performance of an aluminum square tube. The calculation formula is: bending coefficient = (bending Angle/bending radius) × (side length / 2).

**5. Withstand voltage calculation**

The pressure resistance of aluminum tubes can be estimated by the formula P = 2 × S × t/(D-0.8t).

P indicates the pressure (MPa) that the pipe can withstand.

S represents the allowable stress (MPa) of the material.

t indicates the tube wall thickness (mm).

D indicates the outer diameter of the tube (mm).

Precautions for strength calculation:

The allowable stress σ of the material is selected according to the grade and heat treatment state of the aluminum alloy, and different materials have different allowable stress values.

In practical applications, it is also necessary to consider the safety factor to ensure the safety and stability of the structure.

### 6. Strength formula for aluminum square tubing:

The strength of aluminum square tube can be calculated by the formula **σb = Mc/I.**

- where σb is the stress.
- M is the external bending moment, and
- c is the neutral axis distance (for aluminum square tube, usually can be simplified to half of the side length)
- I is the moment of inertia.

The strength of an ** aluminum square tube **can be calculated in a number of ways, but the most common is based on bending stress. When subjected to a bending load, this formula gives the magnitude of the stress that an aluminum square tube develops when subjected to a bending load.

#### In summary

the strength calculation of aluminum square tube involves many aspects, including axial strength, cross section area, moment of inertia, bending coefficient and pressure resistance. In the calculation, it is necessary to select the appropriate calculation formula and parameters according to the specific application requirements and material properties.
