What is it?

The Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization (MMPDS) data and its predecessor MIL-HDBK-5 are the preeminent sources for aerospace component design allowables relating to alloys and fasteners. 

What is in it?

Around 2,800 records of statistically-derived design data for aerospace alloys in various forms and thicknesses, as well as information on the temperature dependence of mechanical properties, fatigue curves, and corrosion rankings. It also contains a complete fastener database comprising more than 500 sheet metal/fastener combinations.

What is it used for?

Supports design using aerospace alloys and fasteners.

Where does it come from?

The data comes from the MMPDS program, which is managed by Battelle and guided by an Industrial Steering Group consisting of leading engineering organizations. Granta is actively engaged in this effort.

How can I access it?

Purchasable as part of the Aero data bundle, accessible within GRANTA MI or GRANTA Selector.
