    Abstract

    Awareness of fiber-reinforced plastics is increasing in the domain of civil engineering. However, much of the potential of these new materials is lost because of inefficient data management practices. The main focus of this research is the design of a formal conceptual data model that encompasses the data needs of civil and structural engineers throughout the life cycle of a composite material component. This data model can be used to support automated data exchange and database development. Other issues addressed in this research include assessing the suitability of the Entity-Relationship model for composite materials data, and modeling special types of data applicable to composite materials.
