hi, i'm making a small site for my coursework on Kevlar, it's uses in defense and it's mechanical properties, i've found that without a textbook or anything like that(our school's physics department is made up by a dep. head, a head of house and a new techer, so we have no head of phys.) it is hard to find the details and to recover the things we did at school.

does anyone know, or know a source for, information regarding Kevlar's mechanical properties(strength, stress, strain, youngs modulus) or just mechanical physics itself?

PS: cool new design

Try www.matweb.com, and search on Kevlar. There are several choices, so I recommend a sampling.

e.g. http://www.matweb.com/search/Specifi...ssnum=PDUKEV29

Some properties here - http://www.chaos.org.uk/~eddy/projec...materials.html

Some general info - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevlar
