The Atlas of Stress-Strain Curves , Second Edition presents more than 1400 stress-strain curves from authoritative sources. The presentation of the curves is normalized to aid making comparisons among materials The Second Edition is substantially biggeruin page dimensions, number of pages, and total number of curvesuand better than the previous edition. It contains over 1400 curves, almost three times as many as in the 1987 edition. The curves are normalized in appearance to aid making comparisons among materials. All diagrams include metric (SI) units, and many also include U.S. customary units. All curves are captioned in a consistent format with valuable information including (as available) standard designation, the primary source of the curve, mechanical properties (including hardening exponent and strength coefficient), condition of sample, strain rate, test temperature, and alloy composition. Curve types include monotonic and cyclic stress-strain, isochronous stress-strain, and tangent modulus. Curves are logically arranged and indexed for fast retrieval of information. The book also includes an introduction that provides background information on methods of stress-stain determination, on data presentation and analysis, and on application of the results.
