Materials Science & Technology 2011 Conference & Exhibition (MS&T'11)
Location: Columbus, Ohio
Dates: October 16-20, 2011
Granta will again be speaking at MS&T this Fall. The MS&T partnership of four leading materials societies—ACerS, AIST, ASM and TMS—brings together scientists, engineers, students, policy makers, suppliers, and more to discuss current research and technical applications, and to shape the future of materials science and technology.
Granta will be demonstrating software solutions to support materials science and technology, helping solve problems including:
- Managing mission critical materials data
- Optimizing materials and manufacturing choices
- Design for environmental objectives and eco regulations
- Accessing valuable materials reference data
Granta also supports materials education, providing a unique set of teaching resources that are used at over 800 universities and colleges around the world to train the next generation of engineers, materials scientists, and product designers. Come and meet some our of education team at MS&T.

"The 'Integrator' for ICME Belongs in the World of Materials Information Management"
Dr. Will Marsden, Granta Design
Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline that has the potential to enable both innovation and efficiency gains in the materials engineering process. In this paper, we begin by considering examples of the potential benefits of ICME, for nickel-based superalloys and composite materials. Using these examples, we then explore some of the requirements for enabling ICME: the need for an effective, relational materials database; a test data interface; and the requirements for effective interfacing with analysis and modeling tools. Finally, we explore a step beyond simple integration in which computational tools can be made interoperable by embedding within them interactive access to shared materials data. We find that most of the requirements for a system to enable ICME exist today, for example, in the system developed by the Material Data Management Consortium—an international collaboration of leading aerospace, defense, and energy enterprises.
