Composites: New online composites property database

A new searchable database of composite material datasheets called Prospector:Composites has launched, intending to help engineers easily locate technical property information about composite materials. The culmination of work between IDES Inc. (Laramie, WY), which manages the online materials database, The Plastics Web, and Firehole Technologies Inc., which develops simulation software for composites materials and structures, the new site was created in response to customer demand.

, which develops simulation software for composites materials and structures, the new site was created in response to customer demand. In addition to data supplied by manufacturers, the online tool will also be populated with data from testing labs and research institutions around the globe.

In practice, Firehole Technologies will gather composite materials data from these sources and provide it to IDES, which will manage the information with its materials-management system, aggregating it at Prospector:Composites.
