Fatigue: The largest database of strain life and stress life parameters for various heat treatments and loading conditions. Monotonic properties are also included for reference along with statistical parameters and estimates where applicable.

As just one part of the Extended Range, our fatigue data allows vital additional information to be viewed by the engineering world and when combined with the Total Materia database provides the ultimate advanced property tool.

Step 1: Choosing a search option

Suppose that you want to view fatigue data for AW-Al Cu4Mg1.

Your first step is to choose a search option. The Total Materia search engine performs material searches by designation most efficiently through the Quick Search option.

Step 2: Defining search criteria

Enter material AW-Al Cu4Mg1 in the designation field. Since the origin of the material is unknown, leave 'All' in country's pop-up list.

All you have to do then is to simply click the button . In a few seconds the Total Materia search engine will find all materials in the world, which have AW-Al Cu4Mg1 in their designation.

Step 3: Selecting the material from the list of results

Searching materials by designation generally results in a list of materials that satisfy the criteria you gave. Depending on the search criteria, this list can be quite large (up to 2000 materials), but in our example the resulting list consists of 35 materials. By clicking on their designation, you can retrieve and review their properties. If your search yields more than 2000 materials it will be necessary to refine your search.

Select the material of interest from the list. In this example we select the Euronorm standard for viewing. Click on the material to see the range of data available for viewing.

Step 4: Selecting the subgroup

Total Materia will conveniently show all matching search results in subgroups. You can then simply select the material that interests you and view any of its properties by clicking on the relevant link.

Selecting the subgroup

To view all available fatigue data click on the link in the subgroup of your choice.

Step 5: Viewing fatigue data

Total Materia will display a range of fatigue data for the material and give you the option to select from a range of conditions by clicking on the drop down menu. By clicking on the relevant tab you can view data pertaining to either strain or stress life. Monotonic properties are included for your reference as well as any applicable statistical data. You can view the interactive graphical information that gives strain life information in the elastic and plastic ranges.
