aluSELECT is a computer-based reference database containing technical information on the most widely used aluminum alloys. This Database is accessible after registration for free and allows the user to obtain information about the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of aluminum alloys. At present, 35 wrought alloys and 12 casting alloys are indexed.
