Temperature Calculator


The following calculator will compute (from the material property database) the temperature at which the material has the specified property value. A temperature range must be given and may be less than the equation range. If the specified property value is not in the given temperature range, no output is given. The calculator will show multiple solutions if they exist. A graph of the property is also displayed over the given temperature range for additional information. The resulting plot can be saved using the button beneath the chart.

Please be sure to enter temperature values only within the specified range for each material and property combination. Values calculated outside the range will be inaccurate, as the data cannot be reliably extrapolated.


Please select the material and property of interest from the dropdown menu and enter the temperature range/increment level (in K) within mentioned range. Input a property value to have the tool return the temperature values that approximately result in that value for the property:
