Databases for Material Science

Open Access Databases for Material Science

  • CCT Diagram Database (CCTD)
    "The welding database system to predict hardness and microstructural constituents in the heat affected zone and to determine optimum welding conditions has been developed by using an estimated thermal cycle and the database of CCT diagram for welding."
  • Chemistry Commons
    Almost 20,000 scholarly open access articles on various aspects of chemistry.
    Spanish version of
  • Civil Engineering Database
    From the American Society of Civil Engineers. No full text, but thousands of journals, papers, and books are indexed.
  • Digital Commons Network: Corrosion
    Open articles from across the network.
  • Electron-Impact Cross Sections for Ionization and Excitation Database
    "This is a database primarily of total ionization cross sections of molecules by electron impact. The database also includes cross sections for some atoms and energy distributions of ejected electrons for H, He, and H2. The cross sections were calculated using the Binary-Encounter-Bethe (BEB) model, which combines the Mott cross section with the high-incident energy behavior of the Bethe cross section. Selected experimental data are included. Electron-impact excitation cross sections are also included for some selected atoms."
  • Google Patents
    Search both U.S. and international patent offices.
  • Inorganic Material Database (AtomWork)
    "The Inorganic Material Database aims to cover all basic crystal structure, x-ray diffraction, property and phase diagram data of inorganic and metallic materials from main literature sources." Free, but registration may be required to view some resources.
  • Mechanical Engineering Commons
    Over 17,000 scholarly articles on various aspects of mechanical engineering.
  • NIST/ARPA-E Database of Novel and Emerging Adsorbent Materials
    "This database is about the novel and emerging adsorbent materials.." -- LOADB
  • Polymer Database (PoLyInfo)
    "Polymer Database "PoLyInfo" systematically provides various data required for polymeric material design." Free, but registration may be required to view some data.
  • PubChem
    PubChem is organized as three linked databases within the NCBI's Entrez information retrieval system. These are PubChem Substance, PubChem Compound, and PubChem BioAssay. PubChem also provides a fast chemical structure similarity search tool. More information about using each component database may be found using the links in the homepage.
  • (Scientific Electronic Library Online)
    International collection of over 1,000 open access eJournals.
  • ScienceDirect: Open Access Articles: Corrosion
    Over 290,000 results, all open access!
  • SciTech Connect
    "SciTech Connect is your connection to science, technology, and engineering research information from the U.S. Department of Energy..."
  • Springer Open
    "SpringerOpen, launched in June 2010, includes Springer’s portfolio of 200+ peer-reviewed fully open access journals across all areas of science."
