ASM Structural Materials Data Demonstration Project

Summary

The ASM Structural Materials Data Demonstration Project SMDDP) is a cooperative research project with the NIST Materials Measurement Laboratory (MML) that is working to create an open demonstration data respository for metallic structural materials.  The other partners guiding the project include Granta Design Ltd. and its affiliate Materials Data Management Inc. (MDMI), Kent State University, Georgia Tech and Nexight Group

Major Accomplishments

In its initial phase, the project is focusing on the heat treatable aluminum 6061 alloy and its underlying ternary system of Al-Mg-Si, incorporating diffusion, phase equilibria, microstructural, and mechanical property data. The overall objective of the project is to provide a tool that the materials community can use to accelerate progress toward the goals of the Materials Genome Initative (MGI).

SMDDP consists of three phases, marked by the progressive development of key data repository elements and access by increasingly larger segments of the materials digital data community.

The data for this project is captured and distributed using both a Granta MI interface and throught NIST DSpace repository.

Public release of the database is expected by the end of 2015.
