Obtaining Material Data for SOLIDWORKS Simulation
Tuesday November 6, 2012 at 9:59am
Every struggled to get some good material data from the internet when trying generate accurate simulation models?
I found a great page in the SOLIDWORKS help files which has a few websites I didn’t even know about! See below…
MatWeb provides material properties for a large variety of materials. MatWeb is freely available and does not require registration.
Temperature Dependent Elastic & Thermal Properties Database. Provide easy access to over 2,400 materials and 18,000 sets of temperature dependent data for elastic modulus, thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, S-N fatigue curves, stress-strain curves & more. Directly input data into SOLIDWORKS, COSMOSWorks, COSMOSDesignSTAR.
The Matereality Global Data Center is a constantly expanding collaborative resource of material properties for engineering and other applications.
SSAB Tunnplåt AB is the biggest steel sheet manufacturer in Scandinavia. their site contains datasheets and Stress/Strain curves.
This database contains transport and thermodynamic property data for the gases used in semiconductor processing.
• Gas Encyclopaedia:
This application enables data on many gas molecules to be accessed rapidly. You can search on a raw chemical formula, chemical name or UN transportation code.
This site makes it possible for you to search, view, print and download data sheets that describe ExxonMobil, Esso, Exxon and Mobil products..
Product Data Sheets.
Skydrol requires one to register to view technical bulletins
• GE PLASTICS
Information about GE plastic materials, and also on-line Engineering and Design tools and calculators
• Material Data Center
This system combines the data of all CAMPUS suppliers for online access of datasheets for many plastic materials, including stress/strain curves.
This site is an independent forum for discussing constitutive models for polymers and their implementation in general purpose finite element programs.
• eFatigue (formerly Fatigue Calculator):
This website contains fatigue calculators as well as fatigue material properties for many steels and aluminums.
Emissivity of common materials: Metals and non-metals.
