Recommended Edition: Teaching Materials for Materials Science

Standard Edition

Supporting most materials-related courses, from introductory level courses, machine design, strength of materials, through to advanced design project work. Its three levels grow in depth (number of properties covered) and breadth (number of materials). At each level, additional data enables progression with the student, from an initial subset of the most common 69 materials through to a comprehensive set of mechanical, thermal, optical, electrical, magnetic and environmental properties for over 3,900 engineering materials.

Covering biomaterials?

Bio Engineering Edition

Supporting the investigation of bio-derived, bio-medical, biological and natural materials. Particularly useful for courses that cover biomimicry and new material design, selection of materials that are biocompatible, and the production of materials from natural products. Its two levels grow in depth (number of properties covered) and breadth (number of materials). At each level, additional data enables progression with the student, from an initial subset of the 256 materials through to a comprehensive set of mechanical, thermal, and optical properties, plus bio properties, including biocompatibility, sterilizability, medical grades, trade names and applications for over 3,900 engineering materials. Links to the ASM Medical Materials Database offer even more detailed information for those subscribed to it.

Covering polymer processing or manufacturing economics?

Polymer Edition

Supporting the investigation of polymers, how their properties can be manipulated by adding copolymers and fillings, or making a foam, how they can be processed, and the impact, durability and transparency properties that make them so popular for packaging. The Polymer Edition starts off with the basics and contains all classes of materials. The three levels of the Materials & Processes database grow in depth (number of properties covered) and breadth (number of materials). At each level, additional data enables progression with the student, from an initial subset of the most common 69 materials through to a comprehensive set of mechanical, thermal, optical, electrical, magnetic and environmental properties for over 3,900 engineering materials.

Linked to this database are two industry standard polymer databases, CAMPUS Plastics and Prospector Plastics, with up to 88,000 materials datasheets from polymer suppliers. The Eco Audit Tool enables study of environmental impact through the product lifecycle. The Synthesizer Tool helps model the properties of hybrid materials (useful for lightweighting) and allows you to explore the economics of design using the Part Cost Estimator. You can also add your own models for calculating material properties based on the data stored in the database.
