Currently, MATDAT.COM material properties database contains over 800 datasets with properties of design-relevant metallic materials. According to the material group that materials in the database belong to, at the moment, contents are divided into following groups:

  • unalloyed steels (MATDAT FREE users)
  • low-alloy steels
  • high-alloy steels
  • aluminium alloys
  • titanium alloys
  • cast irons/steels
  • weld materials
  • other (copper alloys, etc.)

All data are of relevant and verifiable origin - published sources which are already in greater or lower degree available to the community, such as articles published in journals and at conferences, handbooks, etc. All records are properly and fully referenced in order to acknowledge their source and origin.

(*Note: Prior to including any dataset from a copyrighted source into our database, we tried to contact/inform their respective authors and to obtain their consent. However, for certain references, given contact information is outdated and, hence, no more correct. In case that you are the author and notice any data for which you have not been contacted, please, inform us immediately.)

Individual material records contain informations organized into following categories and subcategories (for every category only most prominent parameters are listed here):

  • General information (database record, reference info...)
  • Material information (material designation, material group, chemical composition,…)
  • Tested material (heat treatment, microstructure, hardness,…)
  • Testing conditions - general (testing temperature, testing medium)
  • Monotonic properties – axial and torsional loading (Young´s modulus E, yield strength R e or R p0,2, ultimate tensile strength R m, elongation related to 5x diameter of specimen A5, reduction of area Z (RA), Poisson´s ratio, strain hardening coefficient K, strain hardening exponent n,…)
  • Cyclic/fatigue properties – axial, torsional and bending loading (cyclic yield strength R´p0,2, transition life N T, cyclic hardening coefficient K´, cyclic hardening exponent n´, fatigue strength coefficient e´f, fatigue ductility coefficient s´f, fatigue strength exponent b, fatigue ductility exponent c,…).

Materials can be searched according to a number of different criteria. Initial search results are presented in the form of a table from which they can be selected for presentation in form of detailed report or for comparison overview (up to 5 materials). In addition to material information and values of properties/parameters, images of microstructure, specimens and those of stress-strain, stress- and strain-life curves (if available) can be reviewed as well.

Mechanical Engineering Faculty in Slavonski Brod

Mechanical Engineering Faculty in Slavonski Brod

The beginnings of higher education in the field of technical sciences in Eastern Croatia date back to 1962, when the Technical College in Zagreb established the Centre for Part-time Study in Engineering in Slavonski Brod, in a city with well-known factory Đuro Đaković, established in 1921.

Today the Faculty has been acting as a constituent unit of the University of Osijek, with clear mission and development vision given in the Faculty Strategy. The Faculty is carrying out its main tasks highly professionally; it educates students, develops scientific and research work, international cooperation, cooperation with economy, and fulfils its role in social community.

Main bulding of the Mechanical Engineering Faculty in Slavonski Brod, Croatia

1962 the Centre for Part-time Study in Engineering in Slavonski Brod was established with support of former Technical College in Zagreb
1975 the University of Osijek was established; the Centre for Engineering Study in Slavonski Brod was one of the University founders
1983 upon reorganisation of the Đuro Đaković Institute of Mechanical Engineering, there was the Institute of Mechanical Engineering – Mechanical Engineering Faculty established, within which the Faculty started its scientific research activities and teaching at the former VI/1 level (professional studies)
1986 the Faculty became eligible to carry out university study for the degree of graduated engineer in the field of Mechanical Engineering (within former system of higher education)
1994 in cooperation with the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Faculty started with publication of the journal Technical Gazette, which is nowadays indexed in the SCI Expanded Database
