Granta Presentation

Presenter: Luca Masi, Granta Design

Data/Time: Tuesday, November 7, 12:30pm - 12:50pm

Location: Exhibition Hall

Abstract: Are you using the best materials?

With the ever-expanding choice of materials, how do you ensure you’re considering the most appropriate ones for engineering applications? A poor choice of material can lead to issues ranging from increased development costs and program delays, through to in-service failures and damage to your brand’s reputation.

This talk will introduce materials decision-making software tools, coupled to a comprehensive material property data library, that enable rational material selection and solve challenges relating to material substitution or equivalency. We will demonstrate CES Selector and show, with case studies, how it is used across industry sectors to support smart materials choices for real engineering applications, especially when engineers must resolve conflicting objectives, e.g. minimizing mass or cost while maximizing performance. CES Selector has delivered time savings, breakthrough insights to difficult problems, and extensive cost benefits to user organizations. We’ll also demonstrate CES EduPack, which applies similar methods and augments them with a package of materials teaching resources to support education of the next generation of engineers at more than 1,000 universities and colleges worldwide.
