GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for Abaqus/CAE

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for Abaqus/CAE enables users of the Abaqus/CAE software from the SIMULIA brand of Dassault Systèmes to directly access and use validated CAE materials models from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar CAE environment.

The tool opens a window within Abaqus/CAE that connects to a GRANTA MI database on your corporate network. GRANTA MI manages corporate materials data, complemented by access to a comprehensive catalog of valuable materials reference information.

Through the MI:Materials Gateway window within Abaqus/CAE you can search and browse the available materials, view their datasheets,  choose applicable CAE materials models, and then import these models directly to your CAE environment, complete with full traceability information. All of these tasks can be performed quickly, interactively, and with no risk of error due to data transfer.
