To be susceptible to plastic design, the material of a beam or a frame must not only possess the property of yielding but also that of strain hardening. This proposition, demonstrated earlier theoretically, is now confirmed by several tests involving I-and H-beams made of high strength aluminum alloy 65S-T6 (American designation 6061-T6), whose strain hardening rate is low.
