Re: Aluminum Database

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Depending on the alloy, Mil-Hdbk-5 (not sure what revision they're on - F? G?) will have more data than you can shake  a stick at for aerospace alloys, including 6061, which is pretty common. Otherwise, you'll have to look up the ASTM spec of get an Aluminum Manual.

Hello All,


I’m trying to create a program to generate the allowable stress (and moreover, the calculation report) of a given aluminum member and alloy.  Does anyone know of where I might get my hands on a database for the various alloys (basically Table 1 of V-6 in the ADM05, but in either in excel or an actual database)


A shapes DB would be helpful as well, but I can live on just modifying the steel shapes databases that I already have… plus my clients tend to use a lot of custom sections…
