Abstract : A particular goal of the Workshop was to identify the barriers that must be overcome in order to realize the full benefits of this new computer and telecommunications technology. The format of the Workshop included general talks on the use of computers in design and manufacturing and more specific talks on needs for selected classes of physical, chemical, and materials data. Ten working panels were set up to discuss the issues in the context of the most important types of technical data. This report presents synopses of the talks which were presented and recommendations from the working panels: a. Synopses of General talks-Needs and Resources in Selected Technical Areas- Fluid Properties and Thermochemical Data, Atomic, Molecular, and Nuclear Data, Materials Performance Data; b. Reports of Working Panels-Thermophysical Properties of Fluids, Thermochemical Data, Chemical Kinetics, Spectroscopic, Crystallographic, and Other Data Used for Characterization, Atomic and Molecular Data, Nuclear Data, Phase Diagrams of Alloys, Ceramics, and Polymers, Mechanical Properties, Corrosion Data, Standardization, Compatibility, and Related Issues.
