Metal properties database


Most (78) of the most stable (101) atomic elements (see Table of the Elements) are metals, all of which can be used in pure or alloyed condition. Most of the worlds mechanical and electrical components are still manufactured from metals of one sort or another.

Whilst most data tables and collections contain only a fraction of the alloys and their properties, dependent upon availability, CalQlata has managed to compile a database of over 120 popular metals and their alloys that include more than 99.5% of their properties. Where reliable property values were unavailable they have been calculated and/or interpreted from known data and phase diagrams. For example, melting temperatures have been interpolated from the phase diagram(s) for all the alloy(s) included along with all bulk and shear moduli, which have been calculated from recognised formulas using known elastic moduli and Poisson's ratios.

Metals is a comprehensive and simple to use database of metals and their alloys and their principle physical properties (including chemical composition) in metric or Imperial units, all of which can be found and sorted with no more than two clicks of your mouse.

For more help using this calculator see Technical Help

The metals properties database includes the following:

  • Group & Specification
  • Base metal
  • Yield or proof strength
  • Tensile strength
  • Elongation
  • Mass density
  • Tensile (or Young’s) modulus
  • Shear (or rigidity) modulus
  • Bulk modulus
  • Poisson’s ratio
  • Linear expansivity
  • Cubic expansivity
  • Specific heat capacity
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Electrical resistivity
  • Temperature coeff. of resistance
  • Melting temperature
  • Chemical composition

Sorting a particular property, will also sort all 'Names' and 'Base Metals' into the same order.

All the properties for the metal selected via ‘Names’ or ‘Base Metals’ will appear in the main window.
