Planned useCreating an infobox for materials


This property request is part of the project of creating an infobox for materials. It is classically used for parts that work under compression instead of Young's modulus. I.e. in concrete structures, where compressive strengh value is far greater than tensil strengh, for liquids, gaz... --Thibdx (talk) 11:45, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
