Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTELLIGENT DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PERMITS ADDRESSING TWO PROBLEMS WITH POLUMER AND POLYMER MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS DATA. THE DATA NEED A DATABASE TO SERVE AS A FOCAL POINT FOR ARCHIVING AND REFERENCE. IN ADDITION, FREQUENTLY A COMPLETE SET OF DATA FROM A MATERIAL IS NOT AVAILABLE. IN THIS CASE, THE INTELLIGENT PART OF THE SYSTEM, THE KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM CAN BE USED TO FILL IN THE BLANKS BY PREDICTING VALUES FOR THE MISSING INFORMATION. IN DEVELOPING SUCH A SYSTEM, THE USE OF ASTM E-49 GUIDES FOR DEVELOPING THE DATA RECORDS BOTH FOR MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION AND THE RECORDING OF TEST RESULTS IS IMPORTANT SINCE IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THIS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR BOTH INDUSTYRY AND GOVERNMENT IN THE FUTURE. THE USE OF THE GUIDES PERMITS COMPARISON OF INFORMATION FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES AND THE TRANSFER OF DATA FROM ONE DATABASE TO ANOTHER. DATA VALIDATION CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO THE KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM RULES AND DATA QUALITY INDICATORS WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO THE DATABASE DESIGN. THE PHASE I PROGRAM WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF AN INTELLIGENT DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR NEAT AND FILLED POLYMERS AND DEMONSTRATE THE COUPLING OF THE KNOWLEDGE AND DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.
