Description

Provides material resourcesf information to aggregators through RDF Site Summary (RSS) 1.0 technology.

class
Classifications based on material structures. The recommended practice is to select values from Subustance, Metal, Ceramics (Non-Metal), Polymer (Organic Compound), Composite, Natural.

type
A type will be expressed as keywords of material classification, such as FerrousAlloy, Homopolymer, and ASTM Steel. Recommended words are here.

name
Typically, a "name" will be a target material name, such as Mg-O, SUS304.

composition
A "composition" will be a target material composition, such as Mg, O, Fe, C.

property
A "property" includes material property names included in a target data resource. Recommended words are here.

application
An "application" includes keywords of material's expected application.
