Supporting realistic student design projects for Aerospace, Automotive and Rail applications

with Hannah Melia and Luca Masi

Join this web seminar on Tuesday, May 19 to find out how the CES EduPack Aerospace Edition is used in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering departments world-wide to support courses where design-allowable data and high temperature data are important in supporting realistic student design projects.

Understanding how materials perform at high temperatures and how to select materials systematically, in order to reduce weight while retaining strength, is important for courses concentrating on Automotive and Aerospace applications. Luca Masi, Education Manager at Granta Design, and Aerospace Engineer with international R&D experience in spacecraft propulsion, multi-objective optimization and bio-inspired computational techniques for automatic design of interplanetary space trajectories, will demonstrate how CES EduPack can be used to select materials, design hybrid materials, and review costs, while at the same time helping students to understand the world of materials and the fundamental causes of the properties of those materials.

  • Find out how your students can get quick access to reliable industry standard data (e.g. MMPDS-08 and CMH-17) in a user-friendly format
  • Explore a tool to design composite materials and predict their performance
  • Watch a case study focused on material selection for an upper wing surface skin
  • See whether lightweighting a car body panel will reduce lifetime cost and reduce the carbon footprint
