The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) is a scientific and technical Federal Institute. It performs tests for academic and industrial partners, conducts research, advises regulation agencies and participates in standards committees and contributes to the development of test standards. Its mission to provide reference materials and processes has been recently extended to include reference data sets. The department of Materials Engineering has extensive expertise in characterizing and modeling the mechanical behavior of materials using certified equipment. Single crystalline nickel-based superalloys are one of the classes of materials that have been particularly well studied and for which in IUC02 a framework for the provision of reference material data sets will be developed.
