Thermo-Physical Materials Properties Database of LWRs and HWRs

The THERPRO database is a web-based online database on materials for light and heavy water reactors, providing material properties to the registered/authorized users in IAEA Member States.

It contains over 13,000 data files for 250 reactor materials, including the descriptions of the data and the experiments, and bibliographic information. Latest data published in the relevant technical journals are now being collected and included.

The database has a hierarchical structure consisting of several levels: home page, entry, element, compound, property, author, report, and bibliography level.

All of the data sets in each level are interconnected using a network structure and thus any data can be easily retrieved including the bibliographical information by an appropriate query action.

The THERPRO database is owned by the IAEA and managed by the IAEA's Designated Centre for Nuclear Materials Properties Database Management, located at Hanyang University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.
