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.
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 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
• 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:
