This data repository aims to achieve the following:

  • Disseminate selected experimental data collected by researchers over the years. The data could be used in different ways–
    • Benchmarking computer codes
    • Developing new theories
    • Gaining insights on what experiments have already been done and what needs to be done next and much more …
  • Create synergy between researchers working on different aspects of the same problem. It is our hope that this synergy would help in coming up with answers to complicated problems in lesser time.
  • Avoid wastage of time, money and resources on collecting the data and channeling the same to analysis and solution development.
  • Act as a forum to share the knowledge gained through the usage of the data.
