aluMATTER: Mechanical Properties of Aluminium
The mechanical properties of a material describe its response to applied loads. For many applications, the ability to support a load, or withstand an impact, without excessive deflection or failure is essential. Mechanical properties are therefore often a critical factor in materials selection. This package introduces the important mechanical properties of aluminium alloys and compares aluminium with other materials.
