# Approximating strength and hardness of alloy [closed]

I do not have any formal education in metallurgy, but I am trying to make a game mechanic based on it.

I need to be able to alloy together different metals and alloyable materials such as carbon in different percentages, and get an approximation of the strength and hardness of the resulting alloy. If anyone has any ideas how what I would need to do to calculate such a thing I would be very appreciative.

• Looks too broad - big part of metallurgy - even about steel there are lots of books. – Mithoron Aug 15 '15 at 19:12
• Hmm, @Mith I think the answer could boil down to introducing a general formula $\ldots$ and it doesn't need to be something specific. Are you sure there's no way for a short answer on this? – M.A.R. Aug 15 '15 at 19:37
• @inɒzɘmɒЯ.A.M Looks like Todd managed to do this generally enough ;) – Mithoron Aug 15 '15 at 20:15
