Data Sources of Mechanical and Physical Properties of Engineering Materials


An indexed catalog of sources of compiled data on 23 classes of properties of 50 classes of materials has been prepared: (1) as a guide to a source of particular data needed in current technical work; (2) for identification of needs and opportunities for new and updated data compilations; (3) as a review and comparison of data sources of similar scope; and (4) as auxiliary files for user guidance on networks of computerized databases. Over 1200 citations are listed and indexed in the following categories: Computer-Readable Databases; Data Centers and Projects; General Handbooks; Nonnumeric Sources (graphs and images); Printed Articles and Compilations; and Subset Volumes within a Handbook Series. Each citation has been coded for the material(s) and properties covered within the entry. Several opportunities are outlined for extending the coverage of the compilation, enhancing the entry descriptors, and providing alternative delivery modes.
