Welcome To DIME
Data Interchange for Materials Engineering
DIME is a web application developed by the California Department of Transportation, Materials Engineering & Testing Services (METS) to allow material testing laboratories the ability to easily submit sample information and test data to Caltrans' database via the internet.
To provide a user-friendly web-based interface for storing and sharing material data.
Manage User Accounts
Once the manager accounts are created, managers manage their DIME accounts within DIME. Managers won't need to contact Caltrans for adding, editing, or removing of user accounts. This makes it convenient and easy for the managers as their staff changes.
Supports ASTM, AASHTO and CTM Standards
DIME is designed in a way that it is easy to adapt new standards and procedures. DIME supports ASTM, AASHTO, and CTM standards for most of the test procedures that DIME has implemented so far. DIME will obtain and verify user inputs as specify by the selected test standards. With this, managers are worry-free from incomplete and/or inaccurate data entries.
