Material Database for Steels and Non-Iron Metals
(C) Copyright 1992-2013 by HEXAGON Software, Berlin
Technical data, strength values, alloy components, properties and utilization data for steels and NE metals are available in WST1. WST1 creates an extension-expansion diagram as well as fatigue stress diagrams for tension/pressure, bending and torsion.
The data records can easily be modifed and extended. Any number of new materials can be added. The existing values can be replaced by differing company-own values. Deletion of unrequired data records so that the material selection reflects only those used
is also possible.
The incorporated material data base contains around 900 steel and non-ferrous materials. WST1 uses the common DBF format for the data base. This provides an interface with other programs. WST1 is an open system, the material data can be altered and appended internal, or by means of other database programs.
WST1 comes with four database files: Base data, chemical composition, fatigue stress properties, international material names.
International Standards Comparisation Table
WST1 lists equivalent materials according to international standards EN 10025, EN 10027 (Europe), DIN (Germany), NBN (Belgium), AFNOR (France), BS (Great Britain), UNI (Italy), JIS (Japan), SS and UNE (Sweden), GOST (Russia), AISI (USA).
The material data (E-modulus, shearing modulus, poisson ratio, density, tensile strength, yield point, fatigue stress values, breaking strain, alloy components, info texts) can be output as a list to screen or printer, or saved to a separate file.
WST1 creates an extension-expansion diagram in relation to material type, from tensile strength, yield point or Rp0,2-limit, elasticity modulus and breaking strain. There are different curves for tough and brittle materials.
For dynamic load a Smith diagram is required in order to check the safety margin against fatigue fracture for pre-defined center stress and stress amplitude. WST1 draws Smith diagrams for tension/pressure, bending and torsion. The parameters (permissible stress, alternating strength and pulsating strength) are taken from the data base. Fatigue stress diagrams can
also be created for newly entered materials.
The quick output shows the tension/pressure diagram and three Smith diagrams along with the most important material data on one page.
Diagrams can be printed out or exported to CAD via DXF and IGES files.
