Data management demands of complex materials models
Complex materials models include many material-dependent constants. To verify and apply such models, the engineer must process large volumes of experimental data. Available materials databases concentrate on differentiating between types of test. By recognising the fundamental nature of experimental procedure, the current paper proposes a recursive structure to provide a more flexible and uniform data model. This model clarifies the data retrieval process. Thus, analysis routines predicting complex material behaviour may more easily access a wide range of experimental data.
