14 March 2016) Work continues at CINDAS to expand the content of the Aerospace and High Performance Alloys Database (AHAD) and High Performance Alloys Database (HPAD).
Ninety percent of the alloys added to the HPAD and AHAD in 2015-2016 are stainless steels and nickel-based alloys. These two families of alloys are extremely important for the chemical processing, oil and gas, power generation,and industrial markets. Some of the more widely used and popular nickel-based alloys added are Monel 400, B3, MP35N and G35. For stainless steel alloys the list includes a new chapter for 304, 2507, AL6XN, 904 and lean duplex SS.
By the end of April 2016 twenty-five new chapters will have been added to the HPAD and AHAD since early 2015. CINDAS plan to add at least another 10 chapters by the end of 2016, bringing the total in the HPAD to 110 and in the AHAD to 266.
At the end of 2016, the AHAD will contain 266 chapters with over 20,000 pdf pages that include 17,000 pages of tables and figures with over 10,000 references. Nowhere else but CINDAS will you find a collection of validated materials properties data of this size and scope in a single place.

The Thermophysical Properties of Matter Database (TPMD) has also been updated with data on 81 materials, 76 of which are completely new materials. Those completely new materials include Ti2AlC which has the advantage of having both metallic and ceramic properties (cermets), materials with negative indices of refraction, graphene oxide, and some new polymers. Also included are Al-alloys, Ti-alloys and many insulating oils. New properties have been added for the five materials in this update which were already in the database.
