NIST 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.

NIST Fracture Property Data Summaries: Oxide Glasses

NIST Fracture Toughness Data for Ceramics

NIST Property Data Summaries: Sintered Alumina
NIST Property Data Summaries: Silicon Carbide
NIST Property Data Summaries: Y:123 Superconductors


Physical and mechanical test standards

ASTM C-28 Committee on Advanced Ceramics: Information Summary | Standards for Advanced Ceramics

Mat Web: Free materials information database with data on 22,154 materials, including metals, plastics, ceramics, and composites. Comprised mostly of data sheets and spec sheets supplied by manufacturers and distributors.

MEMS Material Properties Database: Includes mechanical properties, electrical properties, optical properties, and other values acquired through a literature search conducted by the MEMS Clearinghouse.

NASA Ames TPSX Materials Property: Database for advanced thermal protection material properties.

Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD): Maintained by Fachsinformationzentrum (FIZ) in Karlsruhe, Germany.
