From Mike Harding, student at the Mercer University, Macon, Georgia, U.S.
"I am a current student at Mercer University in Macon, GA. I´d like to have access to the database in reference to my current Master´s thesis on biomaterials and applications in orthopedic devices. My current needs are for polymers, titanium, and stainless steel. Thanks! Mike Harding"
From Andrew J. Markle, student at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, New York, U.S.
"Hello, I am e-mailing to request access as a educational member to your materials database. I am currently a junior in Materials Science and Engineering at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. I am currently enrolled in a materials selection course in which the accuracy and reliability of materials property data is of great importance. As such I believe that access to your database will be a great asset to my studies in this course as well as future courses. Thank you very much for your time, Andrew J. Markle Materials Science & Engineering ´14 Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute"
From Nick Gates, student at the University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio, U.S.
"Hello, I am currently a graduate student at the University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio. I am doing research on multiaxial fatigue and fracture of aluminum alloys. In order to compare my test results and properties of my specific test material to other materials, it is desirable to have access to a wide range of material properties for a number of materials. Therefore, I would like to upgrade my account to an educational account. Please consider this request and I will look forward to a response. Thanks, Nick Gates."
From Yunior Hioe, graduate from Ohio State University, Ohio, U.S.
"Dear Matdat.com, I´m a young engineer freshly graduated from Ohio state university. I´m trying to start up a joint research program between the university an my current company. I´d like to gain access to edu user and contribute to the database. the type of material I´ll be interested and contributing are: 1. Titanium alloy 2. nano-particulate enhanced carbon composite (epoxy-glass composite). Thank you, Yunior Hioe."
From Rafael Heras Martin, student at the Technical University of Madrid, Spain
"Hello, I´m studying a M.Eng. in Electric Vehicles at the Technical University of Madrid (INSIA-UPM) and need some info about steels for a class-work. I´ll be very grateful if you estimate my petition to join as a matdat edu user. Thanks!"
