    Abstract

    A distributed database system named “Data-Free-Way” for advanced nuclear materials has been developed by the National Research Institute for Metals (NRIM), the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI), and the Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC) under a cooperative agreement.

    In this paper, features and functions of the system, including input data, are described together with a method to share the database among the three organizations as well as examples of the easy accessible search of material properties provided by the system. Results of an analysis of tensile and creep properties data on Type 316 stainless steel collected by the different organizations and stored in the present system are introduced as an example of attractive utilization of the system. Moreover, in order to know how to use the system, some trails of the WWW server of several sites in Data-Free-Way to supply the information on nuclear materials are introduced.
