ACerS/Wiley Download Direct  

Introducing the ACerS/Wiley Download Direct program, a valuable new benefit for ACerS members!  ACerS’ publishing partner Wiley is making a limited number of article downloads from their comprehensive Online Library (each valued at $30) available to members on a monthly basis. Since the number is limited, ACerS is restricting each member to one download per month. You may download an article from any content area you wish. Members need to be logged in to the ACerS site before clicking on the link below. Once you’ve logged in and after you’ve clicked the link, you’ll be brought to the Online Library. Select a topic, search for the article you want to download, and click on it. It’s yours for free! Remember, one article download per month, per member. If you need more than one article in any given month, contact Marcia Stout to see if additional downloads are available. At this time, the Download Direct program is not available to Material Advantage students. Access ACerS/Wiley Download Direct


NIST Property Databases  

NIST Structural Ceramics Database: Evaluated materials property data for a wide range of advanced ceramics. Covers the major series of compounds derived from the ceramic oxide, carbide, nitride, boride, and oxynitride chemical families.

NIST High Temperature Superconducting Materials Database: Evaluated thermal, mechanical, and superconducting property data for oxide superconductors.

NIST Characterization of Fracture Origins in Advanced Ceramic Materials: Fracture Origin Characterization and the Flaw Catalog: Fracture origin characterization scheme; examples of the most common types of flaws observed in advanced ceramic materials.

NIST Property Data Summaries for Advanced Materials: Collections of property values derived from surveys of published data. Thermal, mechanical, structural, and chemical properties are included in the collections.
