1.1 This guide provides a guideline for the recording of mechanical test data for composite materials for inclusion in computerized material property databases. From this information and the composite material identification guide, the database designer should be able to construct the data dictionary preparatory to developing a database schema.
1.2 The recommended format described in this document is suggested for use in recording data in a database, which is different from contractual reporting of actual test results. The latter type of information is described in materials specifications shown in business transactions and is subject to agreement between vendor and purchaser.
1.3 These guidelines are specific to lamina/laminate tension, compression, and shear tests of high-modulus fiber-reinforced composite materials. These tests may include Test Methods D2344, D3039, D3410, D3552 and D5379, Practice D3518, and Guide D4255. The guidelines may also be useful for additional tests or materials.
1.4 Not covered within the scope of this guide are guidelines for the identification or description, or both, of the composite materials themselves; these are covered in separate documents.
