    Abstract

    The paper gives some information on the development of materials databanks in Germany since the second ASTM-Symposium in Orlando/USA in November 1989.

    The progress of the projects for creating a framework is reported (databank structure and user friendly access via natural language and graphic oriented interfaces) as well as the situation on the projects “Corrosion and Corrosion Protection”, “Ternary Alloy Phase Diagrams” and “ProSTEP”.

    The new governmental activities had to concentrate on the integration of data sources from East Germany. There is one leading specialized materials data center in Dresden, called IMA, where new projects were started.

    In industry it is essential, to harmonize the different databanks. But a real cooperation between different companies did not take place.

    Some Closing Remarks are given on important aspects for new projects. The aim should be to establish a kind of an “independent competence center” working on materials databanks.
