Visualizing Material Properties – Lesson 1

In order to select a material for a specific product, we need to compare material properties with one another. But we have thousands of engineering materials to choose from — where do we begin?

We could compare tables of numbers, but that could be challenging or frustrating. In this lesson, we will look at a more visual approach to comparing material properties with one another.
