NIST Materials Properties Databases for Advanced Ceramics



R G. Munro


The NIST Ceramics Division maintains two materials property databases on the physical, mechanical, thermal, and other properties of high temperature superconductors and structural ceramics. Crystallographic data are featured prominently among the physical property data and serve several important functions in the classification and evaluation of the property values. The scope of materials, properties, and data evaluation protocols are discussed for the two databases.
