Material Properties: Nominal Properties Checkbox
In project warehouse, when a user inputs material properties to the materials pane, it is preferred that they use values from actual characterization tests. However, often the user uploading the data will input nominal or specified material properties instead of actual values, and make no indication that they have done so. It then falls on the person accessing the project later to identify that nominal properties have been used instead of actual values.
It is critical to delineate between actual and nominal values since they often differ greatly and can negatively impact analysis of the data.
To help with this, it would be nice if there were a "tick" box that a user could check when inputting material properties that would flag the properties as nominal. This would prevent guesswork later on when accessing the project.
