MatNavi is one of the world's largest materials databases of polymer, ceramic, alloy, superconducting material, composite and diffusion.

Metallic Material Microstructure Database (Kinso)


This database is constructed based on "METALLOGRAPHIC ATLAS OF LONG-TERM CREPT MATERIALS" published as printed matter and CD-ROM in NIMS Creep Data Sheet Project. The database contains a number of optical, scanning electron and transmission electron micrographs showing the change in microstructure during creep for up to about 200,000 hours (23 years). The database also includes various information related to the microstructures. The microstructure images and the information related the microstructures can be searched from the creep rupture data.
