Managing and Using Materials Information in the Aerospace Industry

Gas turbineJoin Granta Design and our guest speaker, Doug Hall from Honeywell Aerospace, to learn why and how major aerospace enterprises manage and use materials information. You will see how creating a single, fully-traceable, easy-to-use source of corporate materials data not only enhances the productivity of Material & Process teams, but also reduces risk and supports innovation across engineering organizations.

Honeywell are a member of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC). The web seminar will explain how member organizations plan, implement, and apply their materials information systems using the GRANTA MI software, and the outline the resulting benefits.

We will also demonstrate the latest technology for integrating materials information into CAD and CAE—see how you can make it easy for engineers using these systems to find and apply the materials data that they need.

What will you see at the webinar?

  • Learn about the importance of materials information management to leading aerospace enterprises.
  • Hear how Honeywell Aerospace planned and progressed their materials information management system, and learn from their experience of using it.
  • See the latest version of the GRANTA MI materials information management software in action, and understand how it simplifies the use of complex materials data and gives you confidence in its pedigree.
  • See how you can make it easy to find approved materials from within CAD or CAE, and assign their properties directly to design or simulation models.  This ensures accurate weight roll-ups, and reliable, representative CAE.

About the presenters

Doug Hall, Honeywell Aerospace Doug Hall of Honeywell Aerospace has 25 years experience in stress and life analysis on critical jet engine components. He specializes in damage tolerance, fatigue, fracture, and other theoretical disciplines that improve safe-life and reliability prediction. His current role is in Materials & Processes Engineering, developing, deploying and improving material properties databases and data management best practices to support stress engineers for multiple Honeywell Aerospace product lines.
Dr Will Marsden, Granta Design Dr Will Marsden is Granta's Product Director for Aerospace, Defense & Energy. His experience includes research at Rolls-Royce and DERA, and management of the composites group for a finite element software organization. He coordinates the work of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC).

Who should join the web seminar?

Materials specialists or engineers involved in product development, QA, testing, or research in the aerospace and related sectors.

Managers concerned with materials engineering, regulatory compliance (e.g., for ITAR, REACH, or critical materials), design, or simulation.

CAE and CAD engineers who need reliable materials data to support their design and simulation work.
