    Abstract

    Recent trends in the development of materials data systems in Japan are reviewed. As the building of materials data bases is a major concern of industry, academic societies, and government laboratories and the sharing of materials information is a common need among interested parties, the government is supporting the building of materials data bases and networking with the Open System Interconnection (OSI) model. Data base activities under such programs are briefly discussed. However, a more detailed discussion is given to a comprehensive materials data base on the materials strength of engineering steels and alloys that has been developed by the National Research Institute for Metals (NRIM) and Japan Information Center of Science and Technology (JICST). The importance of incorporating the evaluation procedure is emphasized. In addition, some specifics on Japanese language in the system environment are discussed.
