I'm trying to figure out hw much an alum. plate made of 6061 mat'l and is 40" x 48" in size will bow when a load of 700lbs is centered on it and covering an area that is 32" x 40". This plate will be supported by 2" dia. legs at the (4) corners. Since I am trying to stack 3 of these the bowing is critical because I have only 1" between the top of the product and the next plate. This clearance should be sufficient for towmotor fork clearance. Because cost is a factor, I'm trying to figure out which thickness I can use (1", 3/4" ofr 1/2")

Thank you
