Harnessing metals reference data to support high-performance engineering applications

Guest speaker: Doug Hall from

Join us on Thursday, September 29 to find out about Granta's best ever metals reference data library, and how to use this comprehensive data, alongside your proprietary data, for high-performance engineering applications including metals equivalency studies, selection, and simulation.

At this no-cost webinar you will:

  • Find out about our comprehensive library of metals reference data, including the MMPDS-10 aerospace alloy data, the latest Register of European Steels, and ASME data on metals for energy and chemical plant applications
  • Learn from our guest speaker, Doug Hall from Honeywell Aerospace, about the benefits of having access to reference data alongside proprietary materials information
  • See a demonstration of our metals data library and how it can be used to select the right material, access design data, find equivalent grades, and compare material performance.

Further information

The need to identify similar or equivalent materials is a common challenge for metallic materials—for example, due to the need to find a local grade for use in an international manufacturing facility, or because of material supply disruption or material obsolescence. Such equivalency studies require information on global standards and specifications linked to property data, and the right tools to analyze that data in order to identify suitable alternatives. Engineers also need access to reliable data for materials selection, product design, simulation, qualification, and more. For many applications, for example crash simulation, full understanding of the suitability of a material needs data that describes non-linear performance as well as elastic data.

Granta brings together an unrivalled collection of materials data from widely-used and respected sources in a one place. Properties covered include statistically-derived design values for high-performance alloys, global standards and specifications data for identification of equivalent grades, temperature-dependent data, and non-linear data.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Materials specialists
  • Project engineers, product engineers, development engineers and designers.
