This three-volume report serves several purposes. The first volume provides an introduction to the engineered materials effort for the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project. It defines terms and outlines the history of selection and
characterization of these materials. A summary of the recent engineered barrier system materials characterization workshop is presented, and the current candidate materials are listed. The second volume tabulates design data for engineered
materials, and the third volume is devoted to corrosion data, radiation effects on corrosion, and corrosion modeling. The second and third volumes are intended to be evolving documents, to which new data will be added as they become available
from additional studies. The initial version of volume 3 is devoted to information currently available for environments most similar to those expected in the potential Yucca Mountain repository. Each volume contains a separate list of references pertinent to it.
