In the selection of the alloy grade for a construction it is necessary to proceed soundly, taking into account not only low weight and high strength, but also the rest of the properties of the metal - deformativity, durability, plasticity, manufacturability, and the service conditions of the material in the structure the presence of a corrosive environment, shock effects, stress concentrators, etc.. In so doing, the principles of selection of the alloy grade for the enclosing and bearing structures can be different. This is considered in the report.
