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…

Metals (general)
• MatWeb
MatWeb provides material properties for a large variety of materials. MatWeb is freely available and does not require registration.
JAHM
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.
• Matereality
The Matereality Global Data Center is a constantly expanding collaborative resource of material properties for engineering and other applications.
• SSAB:
SSAB Tunnplåt AB is the biggest steel sheet manufacturer in Scandinavia. their site contains datasheets and Stress/Strain curves.

Gas
• NIST
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.

Liquids
• Exxon-Mobil
This site makes it possible for you to search, view, print and download data sheets that describe ExxonMobil, Esso, Exxon and Mobil products..
• Chevron
Product Data Sheets.
• Skydrol
Skydrol requires one to register to view technical bulletins
Plastics
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.
• PolymerFEM
This site is an independent forum for discussing constitutive models for polymers and their implementation in general purpose finite element programs.
Special Applications
• eFatigue (formerly Fatigue Calculator):
This website contains fatigue calculators as well as fatigue material properties for many steels and aluminums.
• Omega:
Emissivity of common materials: Metals and non-metals.
