Question: Is aluminum square tubing stronger than steel?

At 70 degrees Fahrenheit, Youngs modulus of elasticity for aluminum is 10 million pounds per square inch (psi). This effectively means that steel tubing is three times stronger than aluminum tubing of the same dimensions.”

What is stronger pipe or square tubing?

The answer is round tube has a higher resistance to both flex and torsional twisting than square for a given weight.

Is pipe stronger than solid bar?

Strength to weight ratio is better for a hollow pipe than a solid rod. This means a hollow cylinder is stronger than a rod of equal mass and the same material. A hollow cylinder with a bigger inside diameter is better. In the limit x→1 the hollow cylinder is twice as strong.
