Before considering aluminum, you should know what you’re getting into. Have you heard of Modulus of Elasticity? Simply defined, it’s the description of an object’s tendency to be deformed elastically (i.e., non-permanently) when a force is applied. The modulus of elasticity of Aluminum of any grade, is only about 1/3 that of steel. That means, if strength is important, the object would require 3 x’s the amount of Aluminum to equal the strength of steel. Since Aluminum is also 1/3 the weight of steel, now both structures would be equal in weight– What was the point again?
