EDA: Material properties aluSELECT: Aluminium Alloys Database

Material properties

Each alloy in aluSELECT database comes with a datasheet. The material properties are presented in tables or graphs. This way of presentation helps the users to analyze, assess, or compare the alloys with each other. Properties in aluSELECT contain:

  • Chemical Composition
  • Processability
    • Joining Processes
    • Finishing Processes
    • Machinability
  • Durability
    • Corrosion Resistance
  • Characteristics
    • Physical Characteristics
    • Mechanical Characteristics
  • Mechanical Properties
    • Elongation at Fracture
    • Hardness
    • Tensile Strength
    • Yield Strength
    • Load Control Fatigue -Physical Properties
    • Thermal Conductivity
    • Average Expansion Coeff.
    • Electrical Conductivity

Home Screen

After you have logged into aluSELECT you will be routed to a home-screen, which is shown in Fig. 1. The home-screen consists of several tiles which are linked to specific data and/or functions of the system. You can always get back to the home-screen by clicking on the EDA-logo on the top left side.
