The ASMD was developed by CINDAS LLC and is provided through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the United States Air Force. The database contains approximately 80,000 data curves on over 200 alloys used in the aerospace and other industries. This is the new web version of Aerospace Structural Metals Handbook (ASMH)
Ann Arbor, MI : ProQuest-CSA, c2007-
The Thermophysical properties of matter database (TPMD), contains thermophysical properties of over 5,000 materials with approximately 50,000 data curves. This database is searchable by material, by property, or by partial string (name). For all data curves, the material composition, experimental conditions, raw or smoothed data, and references are given. Dynamic graphing capabilities allow users to compare the same property of multiple materials, change scale ranges, and export and import data.
