Automotive Materials Choice – The Bigger Picture

Material Selection, Part Cost, and Eco Audit

with Luca Masi and Hannah Melia

Join this web seminar on Thursday, June 8 to find out why material selection should consider not only material performance but also the environmental and economic cost. This will be illustrated by a case study on the design of an automotive door panel.

AutomotiveJoin this web seminar to:

  • Find out how the visual and interactive software tools in CES EduPack, including the Part Cost Estimator, Synthesizer Tool, and Eco Audit Tool, are used in materials selection
  • Explore how polymers can help lightweighting by materials substitution, taking into account performance as well as environmental impact and manufacturing costs
  • See an engaging industrial case study that can be used to stimulate the interest of tomorrow’s engineers.

How to register and join the session

There is no cost but registration is required through the WebEx system. Please ensure you set your local time zone to receive accurate meeting invitations and test your setup in advance of the meeting. How to use WebEx, including setting times zone & language preferences

About the Presenters

Luca Masi is an Aerospace Engineer working at Granta Design as Senior Business Development Manager. He has run materials selection short courses at universities (Georgia Tech, Northwestern University, Boston University, UC Irvine) and conferences (TMS, ASEE). Before joining Granta, he has collaborated with the French Space Agency on software development for bio-inspired space trajectory optimization, and on computational techniques for multi-objective optimization as part of his PhD at the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde (UK). He is author of several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters for AIAA and IEEE on these subjects. He also has R&D industrial experience in spacecraft propulsion systems. Luca also holds a Master’s Degree (first class) in Space Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Pisa (Italy).

Hannah Melia leads the Teaching Resources Team at Granta Design and has responsibility for the development of CES EduPack and associated teaching resources. She has a degree in Materials Science and Metallurgy and a Post Graduate Certificate in Design, Manufacturing and Management from the University of Cambridge. She has worked in the United States and Germany on medical device design and technology transfer. Over the last 8 years she has interacted with academics that use CES EduPack around the world.
