I'm probably posting in the wrong area, but where can i find the Modulus for different type of steel? Is there any sites that list this???

Here are some typical values that i took directly off my Engineering Materials Textbook, but i don't know if this is what your looking for?
You looking for elasticity? shear? resilience? rupture?

Modulus of Elasticity (GPa):

Aluminum 69
Brass 97
Copper 110
Magnesium 45
Nickel 207
Steel 207
Titanium 107
Tungsten 407

Shear Modulus (GPa): (same order, top -> first, bottom -> last)
25, 37, 46, 17, 76, 83, 45, 160

www.matweb.com is an online listing of materials resources.

The only downside is you can't really tell what the specific differences are between the materials. For example: I used the site to find an aluminum alloy for use in a group project. My fear is that there are properties about the alloy which aren't listed which will make it an unideal choice.

Professor: "Those are nice calculations you've spent the last 4 weeks working on. Unfortunately, the alloy you picked breaks down readily in the presence of monatomic oxygen, and is therefore an extremely poor choice for the skin of a spacecraft."

enigma: "DOH!"
