Explore Software Tools for Materials-Related Critical Decision-Making in Industry, Research, and Education

In this hands-on workshop, you will access a comprehensive library of materials data; discover tools to help chart and analyze property data; and support better materials decisions using a systematic multi-objective material selection approach.

You will learn how to find technical materials property data (metals, ceramics, polymers, composites) and processes data (e.g., additive manufacturing). The instructors will also show how this data can be used for materials selection in research and teaching activities taking into account conflicting objectives, e.g., minimizing mass or cost and maximizing performance. Elements of sustainable development and green engineering will be taken into account as well.

A time-limited license of the CES Selector software will be distributed before the workshop for attendees’ own Windows laptops. Attendees will also get access to Granta Design’s extensive materials education teaching resource community.
