ASM, NIST to Collaborate on Data Network
ASM International announced that the NIST Material Measurement Laboratory and ASM, through its Computational Materials Data Network, have formed a collaboration: the Structural Materials Data Demonstration Project. It will establish a data repository focused on metallic structural materials, leveraging the overlapping interests and strengths of the two organizations. The data repository, housed in the Materials Data Laboratory of the Computational Materials Data Network, will support data for use at a number of length scales, including first principles and phase-based information, quantitative microstructural descriptions, process information, and property and materials performance data. Open access to the data repository will provide the materials digital-data community with a resource for data analytics and informatics, modeling and simulation, and educational purposes.
