K-Factors

Good Morning Everyone,

 

I'm banging my head against the wall here and looking for suggestions.

 

I have a sheetmetal panel which can have different materials and thicknesses.  Based on the different material types and thicknesses, the K-Factor will be different.  Is there an easy way when selecting a material type and gauge can the K-Factor change based on these parameters?

 

For example:  My sheetmetal is 20ga S/S.  The K-Factor for this combination of material and thickness would be 0.5 but if I choose 16ga AL, the K-Factor would be 0.3,

 

Help please,

   Mike K.
