    Abstract

    This paper documents the structure of a computer file used for importing and exporting material property data from database management systems. The file uses only ASCII characters. Attention is paid to each line in the file, its labels, contents, limitations, and purposes. The file was developed for use with ASM International's materials properties data base management system, Mat.DB. However, the file structure can be used independently of Mat.DB by any system programmed to read or write the file structure.
