CAE Starter Database
|What is it?||An introductory data module supporting users of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software.|
|What is in it?||Sample materials property information on sixty typical engineering materials, enabling engineers to get started in populating and using CAE materials models.|
|What is it used for?||Initial validation and use of the GRANTA MI materials information management software as a supporting system for CAE.|
|Where does it come from?||Data is compiled and maintained by Granta Design.|
|How can I access it?||Via a compatible CAE system that offers a connection to the GRANTA MI materials information system|
The CAE Starter database contains data on 60 of the most common engineering materials, including metals, polymers, ceramics, glasses, composites, and natural materials. Each record contains a full set of data suitable for thermal or linear static mechanical analysis. The properties covered include:
- thermal conductivity
- thermal expansion
- specific heat
- electrical conductivity
This data is a sample from Granta's comprehensive MaterialUniverse data module and shares its same pedigree of completeness and quality.
All of this data is available in an easy-to-use tree structure. The inclusion of alternative common names and designations allows the correct material to be found quickly.
