Next-Generation Liquefaction (NGL) Case History Database Structure


This paper presents the organizational structure (schema) of the next-generation liquefaction (NGL) relational database. The schema describes the tables, fields, and relationships among the tables, and provides an important resource for users who wish to interact with the database by writing queries. Structured relational databases are not commonly utilized in the natural hazards community, where file repositories are more commonly used and often called "databases". This paper also discusses what a relational database is, and why this approach was adopted for the NGL project.
