The report describes the activities of the Mechanical Properties Data Center during the tenth year of operation. Under Contract DSA900-72-C-0787 the Center acquired 1,418 materials evaluation reports, encoded over 61,000 computer retrievable test results, responded to 182 technical inquiries and generated 15 new or revised chapters for the Aerospace Structural Metals Handbook. Emphasis on cost reimbursement through the sale of products and services by the Center necessitated a moderately aggressive marketing-sales program, a search for new users and the development of new products-services. The results of these efforts, including the attainment of nearly 60 of initial funding through sales, are discussed in detail. Hardware and data flow are described by means of a schematic flow chart. Distribution of effort, levels of activity and other statistical information are presented in graphic or tabular form.
