From ambient down to cryogenic temperatures, the behaviour of materials changes greatly. Mechanisms leading to variations in electrical, thermal, mechanical, and magnetic properties in pure metals, alloys, and insulators are briefly introduced from a general engineering standpoint. Data sets are provided for materials commonly used in cryogenic systems for design purposes. 
Low-temperature thermoelectric transport properties of selected metals and dielectrics

Direct Measurement of Thermoelectric Currents During Cool Down
In recent years there has been much discussion on thermoelectric effects and their role in flux expulsion during cool down of SRF cavities. Magnetic field is often measured to asses both flux
Quantitative correlation between the void morphology of niobium-tin wires and their irreversible critical current degradation upon mechanical loading
This work demonstrates a quantitative correlation between the void morphology and the electro-mechanical limits measured on different Bronze route Nb3Sn wires, and quantitatively correlated with the experimentally determined limits of the irreversible critical current degradation upon mechanical loading.
Subsurface deformation micromechanisms induced during machining of titanium alloys at low temperatures, and a novel testing methodology to examine their machining behaviour
The aerospace industry’s drive towards higher productivity has led manufacturers to strive for higher surface speeds in metal cutting. Machining of titanium alloys leads to high temperatures
Effect of cryogenic temperature and frequency on copper coils
There is increasing interest in development of magnetic energy storage with conduction cooling. In contrast with the liquid- and gas-cooled coils, the conduction-cooled coils are expected to have
Improved Copper–Epoxy Adhesion by Laser Micro- and Nano-Structuring of Copper Surface for Thermal Applications
Using adequate laser parameters, it is possible to obtain high bonding strength values limited by cohesive epoxy fracture, together with good thermal conductivity at ambient and cryogenic temperatures.
Mechanical Design of Superconducting Accelerator Magnets
This paper is about the mechanical design of superconducting accelerator magnets. First, we give a brief review of the basic concepts and terms. In the following sections, we describe the
