Updated regularly. Provides access to resources produced by the Center for Information and Numerical Data Analysis and Synthesis (CINDAS) at Purdue University. Focuses on the properties and behavior of materials. Involves both basic and applied research, using both experimental techniques and literature searches. Includes the identification and collection of available and relevant worldwide scientific and technical literature; the compilation, critical evaluation, correlation, and synthesis of both existing and new experimental data to produce reliable reference data (recommended values); and the generation of estimated values to fill data gaps and voids.
