Abstract: Materials and document databases are important tools to conserve knowledge and experimental materials data of European R&D projects. A web-enabled application guarantees a fast access to these data. In combination with analysis tools the experimental data are used for e.g. mechanical design, construction and lifetime predictions of complex components. The effective and efficient handling of large amounts of generic and detailed materials data with regard to properties related to e.g. fabrication processes, joining techniques, irradiation or aging is one of the basic elements of data management within ongoing nuclear safety and design related European research projects and networks. The paper describes the structure and functionality of Mat-DB and gives examples how these tools can be used for the management and evaluation of materials data of European (national or multi-national) R&D activities or future reactor types such as the EURATOM FP7 Generation IV reactor types or the heavy liquid metals cooled reactor.
