Room-temperature values for nine thermomechanical material properties of 130 space-related materials have been tabulated in this report. These data are essential for analyses to determine material response to pulsed radiation that relate to survivability assessments of space systems based on above- and below-ground nuclear weapons effects experiments. The nine properties tabulated for each of the 130 materials include density, specific heat constant pressure, specific heat constant volume, Poissons ratio, Gruneisen constant, adiabatic sound velocity, Youngs modulus, isothermal bulk modulus, and volumetric coefficient of thermal expansion. Various appropriate elements, oxides, carbides, halides, metallic alloys, semiconductors, optical materials, glasses, plastic and graphites are included in the tabulation. The majority of the materials are high density, low porosity, isotropic and polycrystalline in form.
