Abstract
Over the past several years the U.S. Navy has formally implemented its metallic materials selection process (MSP). The MSP provides guidance for the design agent for selection of materials for critical, non-nuclear applications. It further requires the design agent to document all information used in the selection process. In critical applications, a fracture toughness review process (FTRP) is invoked, where all material properties required for fitness for service over the life of the ship are defined, determined and/or documented. A metallic materials properties database (MMPD) is now being established to be available to aid in the Processes. Details of each process and their relationship with each other and the database are discussed.
