With the new MatNavi integrated search engine, you can search across multiple databases with a single sign-on:
Two search modes are available :
1. Tree Search
2. Keyword Search
After a search, you can jump directly to the relevant data pages.
- Tree Search
The Tree Search allows you to search for data according to the categories and properties of materials. A material hierarchy tree appears in the left part of the page. If you click on "+", a sub-hierarchy is shown; and clicking on "-" will hide this sub-hierarchy. By clicking on a material category or property, you can easily obtain matching data.
- Keyword Search
If you want to run a search by keyword, simply type the keyword (element name, chemical formula, property name, ...) in the search box and press Enter or the "search" button.
By inserting AND between keywords, or by typing the keywords and pressing the AND radio button
, you can obtain data matching all the keywords.
Creep AND Fe
By inserting OR between keywords, or by typing the keywords and pressing the OR radio button
, you can obtain data matching at least one of the entered keywords.
Creep OR Fatigue
If you wish to exclude a keyword from your search, type NOT before the keyword.
Creep NOT Fe
You can use parentheses to combine "AND", "OR" and "NOT" operators.
(Creep Fe) OR Fatigue
You get a warning if
1. AND and OR are entered consecutively. For example:
Creep AND OR Fe
2. a search query begins with AND or OR. For example:
AND Creep AND FE
3. AND or OR is placed immediately after NOT. For example:
Creep NOT AND FE
If two or more keywords are enclosed by double quotation marks, they will be treated as a single phrase, and the server returns data matching the phrase exactly.
