Civil Engineering Research: Material Properties
The list below begins with Knovel, which covers all material types, then subdivides into different categories of material (metals, polymers, etc.)
Excellent place to start your search for properties data for all kinds of chemicals and materials, Knovel's unique data search tool enables you to locate information in large complex tables in hundreds of handbooks; the data can be manipulated in a spreadsheet format and downloaded into Excel or as a PDF file.
To learn how to use Data Search, watch this short video below:
- Metal Material Data Sheets
- Aluminum Alloy Database
- Properties of Aluminum Alloys - Fatigue Data and the Effects of Temperature
- Titanium Alloy Database
