16 July 2015) The Aerospace and High Performance Alloys Database (AHAD) created by CINDAS LLC addresses the needs of all industries including the aerospace, defense, oil/gas, chemical processing, power generation and transportation industries.
When CINDAS was asked by many engineers in industries other than aerospace to produce a materials properties database analogous to the Aerospace Structural Metals Database (ASMD), in format, but more focused on the specific needs of these high performance industries including detailed data on corrosion testing and joining, the High Performance Alloys Database (HPAD) was the result.
CINDAS recognized that many of its current ASMD (Aerospace Structural Metals Database) clients would also want the information on the alloys in the HPAD. Therefore HPAD and ASMD have merged into a powerful combined database with alloys of importance in all industries requiring high performance alloy data, the AHAD. The AHAD was released in spring 2015. The AHAD has the same interactive features as other CINDAS databases and is web based and updated and expanded continually with carefully selected alloys.
When completed in 2016, it will contain about 300 alloys, over 20,000 pdf pages which includes 17,000 pdf pages of figures and tables, 30,000 datasets, 105,000 data curves and 10,000 references.
The advantage of the AHAD over the ASMD is that it currently contains 12 chapters which will never be in the ASMD. Eleven more chapters will be added in 2015, and 18 more are scheduled to be added in 2016 and beyond.
Please contact CINDAS for a subscription to the HPAD or AHAD or to transition your current ASMD subscription to the AHAD.
