Defect free joints, now there's a good idea
"Cutting edge, defect free joints" might be useful on the new Bay Bridge that the CalTrans contractor is struggling to fix here in San Francisco. Beyond that, I'm not sure what data is being made available or how it might be useful. Wish I knew more. We need to know more about how federal lands are being used, for good and for ill.

Yes, but .........
Yes, this research was done by the federal government and it belongs to the American People. So, unless it HAS to be kept secret, it should be made available to them in the most efficient manner possible

But, I wish there were some way that it could be kept from others. I certainly don't imagine that the Chinese make their research results available to the world.

Sensical
It makes a lot of sense to me to allow people access to this data we are all paying for anyways. 

And we all might see interesting uses of that information. Who knows what some developer might come up with in his or her basement. I think sometimes data needs to be looked at by many sets of eyes in order to get some perspective on things.
