WEB EMMO-based Mechanical Testing domain ontology and example application

Part of:

The industrial materials development cycle is highly dependent on large volumes of data continuously generated from experiments, characterisation and simulations. These large amounts of data scattered among isolated and disparate sources combined with data heterogeneity and poor curation practices lead to significant challenges in terms of data integration and sharing. This issue can be addressed by a common ontology that facilitates interoperability of experiments, models, data and software when supported by efficient dataspaces that enable the link between the actual data to their semantic information (ontology) as well as search and secure access/store of the data.

A domain ontology for the Mechanical Testing is presented in this work. This ontology is compliant with EMMO - the European Materials & Modelling ontology. It builds on open standards for materials modelling and characterisation and thus embraces the current efforts towards a “common language” for materials. The presented work demonstrates a coherent bottom up and top down domain ontology development based on EMMO guiding principles and introduces recent developments on application ontologies of relevance for the presented Mechanical Testing domain.
