On the Tab SEARCH PROPERTIES you can enter various values for property values (min./max.) for materials. All designations found that match the properties will be displayed in Results.
The function Fuzzy search enables the search for property values with a maximum permissible percentage tolerance for the entered search values. The permitted tolerance applies to all properties sought.
If different values are given for a property's minimum value and maximum value, then this is treated as a min.-max. search. If in both fields the same value is given, then this is treated as a single value search.
Combo box Country
By selecting <all> the materials can be searched for across all countries. If a particular country is selected, then the search is restricted to that country.
Only Search values marked with active will be searched.
By using TAB or by using the mouse you have access to the fields on the right hand side where percentage values can be entered.
Input minimum and maximum property values that the desired material should fulfill. The input is made in the displayed unit.
No input can be made in this column. It shows the unit of the selected property.
|Dimension min./max.||In these columns the dimensional range for which the property sought should apply, can be restricted through the input of a minimum and maximum value.|
In these columns the temperature range for which the property sought should apply, can be restricted through the input of a minimum and maximum value.
In this column, the search can be restricted to a specific condition.

|This button deletes the actual marked row of the Search value table.|
Clicking the Search-Button initiates the search for materials that match the property values entered.
With the button Delete list the complete Search values table is deleted.
With the help of the Apply Fuzzy Search checkbox, it is possible to restrict the search result by specifying a maximum permissible percentage tolerance with regard to the value deviation.
(By this default materials are found which are not only mathematically correct, but come close to the "logical" Search value.)
When starting this function a dialogue will open into which you can enter the maximum permitted tolerance for the search.
In this list the materials matching the search criteria are listed in alphabetical order.
By clicking the -symbol the found material property values are displayed.
