    Most aircraft sites give Rates of climbs for varying altitudes but I am trying to find out about rates of dives if anyone as done a database.

    No.

    You might find SOME data on maximum dive speeds but a 'rate' of a dive implies acceleration profile from zero velocity in 'Z' axis throughout the dive until terminal velocity and steady velocity is attained.

    Yeah, max speed is a bit different from how fast an aircraft accelerates to get to that speed. But I know what you mean, I just haven't ever seen anything close to that.
