Computerized Material Property Data Information System

Pagination or Media Count:
A program to computerize material property data was established by an ad-hoc Army group. It was initially supported by Picatinnys Computer Aided Design Engineering CAD-E activity, through which the information system was determined to be feasible. This report describes the proposed system operation by remote and on site access modes planned throughout the Army. The program has been structured to computerize both plastics and metals property data, in support of engineering, manufacturing and procurement activities, using common software and hardware. Although many commercial, material property data programs have been developed none contain the unique features to be incorporated, i.e., remote access by display terminals, comprehensive engineering oriented data and the most centralized source of plastics and metals data. The report primarily addresses plastics technology with limited discussion of the metals integration.
