Material Database for Efficient Development Using Materials Informatics

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.32 No.2


A comprehensive material database that enables the storage, management and export of material data and related information in a standardized format has been constructed to promote the use of materials informatics to achieve highly efficient materials research, such as the application of information science to predict physical properties in order to reduce experimental trial and error.
Usability and user differences such as expertise were taken into account when selecting the database tools and creating the internal structure. As a result, storage of around 10,000 test data and standard properties in various material fields has been completed.
It was confirmed that this enables a reduction in the work time required for data cleansing, which is an issue for use of materials informatics. It also facilitates the acquisition of data needed for design and CAE, etc., and helps to increase operations efficiency and reduce development costs.
