Good reference book or links for material selection

  1. May 13, 2013 #1
    Hi Everyone,

    I am basically a post graduate student try to set up my own business. Its a mechanical based business. I come across activities like material selection, fabrication, machining & installation and commissioning. In short turnkey projects.

    Since my activities are customer based so I have to refer different standards American / British / German / Indian Standards (Primarily all the 4 standards).

    So my dilemma is can any one suggest me such a reference books or links which cover the basic parameters like (Chemical composition & mechanical properties i.e. tensile, elongation etc)

    The basic need is, if a customer states (for example 1000 UTS then I can find equivalent material in the corresponding (American / British / German / Indian) Standards.

    Basic standardized books with (American / British / German / Indian) standards into consideration will be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.
