The value of a database of material properties is enhanced if the data which it contains have been subjected to a range of checks and if missing data can, with stated accuracy, be estimated. Two ways of doing this were described in an earlier paper. We here extend the range of methods by developing two new, more general, approaches. Keywords: material data estimation; material data validation; property correlations Proc. R. Soc. Lond. A (1998) 454, 1323-1336 c 1998 The Royal Society † As
