What materials database do you use?

What materials database do you use?


I've come to ask about what materials databases you guys use (if you do). Up until now I've been using Granta materials - but my license has now expired so I thought I'd see if there's anything else about.

RE: What materials database do you use?

The Granta one is the best. ASM International has a combination of items (Handbooks Online, Alloy Center, Micrograph Database, and Failure Analysis Database) available over the Internet that are good too.

RE: What materials database do you use?

Thanks for your replies! I'll take a look at these.

RE: What materials database do you use?

No database is all-embracing. There are always strengths and weaknesses. So it is important to identify what type of information you need. I have always used CAMPUS (www.campusplastics.com) because my particular interest revolves around properties determined by standard test methods. However, I can't pretend the database is the best for pursuing design equations.
