datasheet view displays the value and units for
each of a record's
properties (user preferences for the display of numeric
data can be altered on the preferences page).
The properties are often grouped (eg. the mechanical properties of a material include Elastic Limit, Fracture Toughness, Hardness and Tensile Strength). These groups can be expanded or contracted in suitable browsers by clicking on the headings.
The text 'est' following a property name indicates that the value shown is an estimated value.
At the top of the datasheet, tools can be found that provide useful features for the current record being displayed :
database is complete (ie. has no holes or gaps). Therefore, in some places where it was not possible to obtain data from published sources, it has been necessary to use expert estimates of data values (eg. the Recycle Fraction of Aluminium Alloy 2014-T6).
Some properites are not relevant for some records. These have the value of 'Not Applicable' and are not displayed on the datasheet. For example the property 'Dielectric Constant' is not shown for all electrical conductors (eg. metals, since the dielectric constant is a property that is only relevant for electrical insulators).
Clicking on this icon will take you to the Notes view. Any notes for the property are shown.
At the top of the notes view, the following tool can be found :
