Abstract
Material properties data are an essential part of major disciplines in many engineering fields. Especially in the nuclear science and engineering, fundamental understanding of the thermo-physical-chemical-mechanical properties of nuclear materials is critical. In fact, accurate and reliable material properties data are required for the evaluation of the performance and safety of current and future nuclear reactors under normal operation or accident conditions.

In this respect, the collection and systematization of openly available thermo-physical properties data as well as necessary new data measurements have been conducted within IAEA's Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on “Establishment of a Thermo-physical Properties Database of LWRs and HWRs”. Based on the results of the CRP, an online web-based material properties data base, THERPRO, was developed and it is currently available to registered users in all IAEA Member States. THERPRO is managed by the IAEA designated Center for Nuclear Materials Database (CNMD), located at Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea and it is available through the IAEA public website at http://therpro.iaea.org.
