Webinar Series: Strategic materials information initiatives in the aerospace industry

Information on the properties and behavior of materials—alloys, composites, ceramics, plastics—is critical to aerospace and defense enterprises. At four short webinars this Fall, join Granta's team of experts for presentations and a live discussion on how to maximize the value of this information. Across the series, you will:

  • Granta customers include the world's leading aero engine makers Responding to environmental regulation is a key issue for aerospace
    Granta helps space agencies and suppliers including NASA Granta assists the manufacture of aircraft and components of all types
    Hear how engineers are reducing cost and making better materials decisions, faster, overcoming challenges such as the need for substitution and material obsolescence.
  • Discover how your company can benefit from technology to manage the complete materials data lifecycle, with a particular focus on the challenges of composites and advanced materials developed with a leading industry collaborative project, the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC).
  • Understand how engineering enterprises are managing and integrating data from experiment and simulation, and applying it in materials engineering.
  • Learn how leading aerospace enterprises are making traceable materials information accessible directly within CAD, CAE, and PLM software

Session details

Dr Charlie Bream starts the series on Tuesday, September 30, with an aerospace-focused webinar exploring how engineers, materials experts, and product development teams are reducing costs and improving performance by making the right material choices. See the new CES Selector 2015 in action, and put your questions to the Granta team. More details 

On Wednesday, October 29, join Granta's Dr. Will Marsden to learn more about the “Business Case for Materials Information Management” and discover how leading aerospace enterprises are now meeting this challenge. See how materials data management can reduce direct and indirect costs, and minimize risk through materials data integrity and traceability.

On Wednesday, November 5, Dr. Marsden will share the experiences of the Material Data Management Consortium’s Composites Sub-Committee as we turn our attention to the specific challenges of managing composites information.

Finally, on Wednesday, November 12, Granta's Dr. Arthur Fairfull will present a webinar looking at the benefits of accessing corporate materials knowledge through integration with CAD/CAE to support an enterprise-wide materials strategy.
