NIST Property Data Summaries for Advanced Materials

About Property Data Summaries.

Printed Reports:
A limited number of printed copies of the full reports for the following NIST Property Data Summaries are available. To request a copy, email your name and mailing address, along with the name of the requested report(s), to:

Focused Studies for Specific Materials

Focused studies typically contain:
    Chemical information: composition and processing
    Measurement methodology: techniques and conditions
    Physical characteristics: crystallography data, density
    Mechanical properties: elastic moduli, strength, hardness, toughness, creep, wear
    Thermal properties: specific heat, diffusivity, conductivity, expansion.

The data typically are provided as a function of temperature. Additionally, data pertinent to specialized applications, such as critical temperatures for high temperature superconductors, may also be contained in the reports.

Topical Studies for Specific Properties

Topical studies typically contain data on a particular property for a broad spectrum of materials. Chemical compositions, measurement methods, and measurement conditions are identified, and supplementary data may be included also. (For example, hardness and Young's elastic modulus might be included in some records of a study on fracture data.)
