Anybody know where to find out how much of a radius different HSS shapes have at their corners. I know this depends on the thickness of the tube wall. In the welded joint tables, the flare bevel weld shows that the radius C is three times the thickness, which could be 1-1/2" for a 1/2" thick wall. Is this right? I haven't seen a lot of half inch wall tubes to recollect how big of a radius it had on them. Is there any where you can find this information?
I have wanted to know this radius several times over the last couple of weeks, so thought I would finally ask.
