Welcome to CADS – an online source for engineering properties data as a function of the casting process, section thickness and other key process parameters for the design and simulation engineers developing new or redesigning an existing metal cast component. Use Global Alloy Search option if you know the generic alloy and need to find the suitable one matching your casting process; use Strength Property Search option if you know the allowable strength properties your part needs and find a list of candidate alloys that meets or exceeds your requirement and use the last menu option – Select Alloy from Grade List; where we have a list of all the available alloy data currently in CADS. Additional information on how to use, click on Help, About, Tutorial and Case Study under General Menu on your left.
