Proper selection of the material suitable for a specific application is one of the most important and complex issues that needs to be addressed ever earlier during product development. For modelling and simulation of the response of loaded structures and components, among other information, more or less intricate properties which describe material behaviour must be known. Except for the case of determining values of basic monotonic properties, experimental characterisation of material behaviour is complicated, expensive and, in the case of cyclic i.e. fatigue experiments, it can be long-lasting as well. If experimental testing of all candidate materials cannot be performed, which is usually the case, alternative solutions, such as literature research and estimation methods are often resorted to.
In light of this, it is suggested that the quality and accuracy of material selection can be improved by:
The main idea behind MATDAT.com is at least partial fulfillment of above mentioned measures and making results of the project easily and widely available to the members of technical community (experts from the industry, engineers, designers, scientists, professors and students).
Our primary goals are:
Robert Basan, Assist. Prof., D. Sc.
MATDAT.com founder and project leader
Affiliation: Faculty of Engineering, University of Rijeka, Croatia
Took part in a number of national and international research projects, both as a collaborator and project leader. In co-authorship with his colleagues, he published his work in high level journals such as International Journal of Fatigue and Computational Materials Science, and he is also active as a reviewer for these and similar journals.
