Ok, given a C channel of A, B, A' dimensions, typical boxing closes the open side, to yield A, B, A', B'.

If, instead of that 2nd B side, you put in a web from one corner, say the B-A corner to the upper outside, it would be sqrt(A^2 + B^2) wide. That triangular tube would be weaker than the ABA'B' tube? The shape doesn't figure into its strength?
