Can someone please help me!!!!
I want to use an Aluminum U channel to support a load of 1000lbs. evenly distributed. The channel is supported by two wheels. My question is what type of aluminum should I use, and what should the thickness of the flanges be? I already have some known dimensions that I have to live with. Thanks

Please look at the attachment for more details. The dimensions are in inches.
