Materials data for simulation: when & where you need it

Join this webinar on Wednesday, May 3 to learn about best practice in finding, preparing, and using the materials data required as input for simulation. You will see how to access the new JAHM Curve Data module, a library of temperature-dependent material property data.

Register for this no-cost webinar to:

  • Learn about how leading organizations generate, prepare, manage and use controlled, consistent materials data for CAE, enabling faster, more accurate simulation results
  • See a case study using the new JAHM Curve Data module, to understand the data and how it can be used
  • See apps providing fast access to materials data within leading simulation packages, like Abaqus/CAE® and ANSYS Workbench®
  • Learn about how leading engineering enterprises are using materials information management software to streamline their CAE processes.

Further information

Simulation is vital to product development but its accuracy depends on the quality of input data. Analysts can waste time finding the right material models and jeopardize the validity of their work if they use data that is not from a reliable, approved source. With GRANTA MI™ companies create a single, easily-accessible, traceable ‘gold source’ for all corporate materials data. They can manage the full lifecycle for simulation input data: from test, through analysis, to simulation model. This in-house data is complemented by an extensive library of leading reference data covering all material types. A new development is the addition of the widely-used and respected JAHM data to this library to further enhance its value for simulation.

The JAHM data includes more than 2,900 materials, with a particular emphasis on metals and ceramics, and 24,000 sets of temperature-dependent data for elastic modulus, thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, S-N fatigue curves, stress-strain curves, and more. Analysts can access all of the data that they need in one place, including (via the GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway app) making it available and searchable from directly within CAE software such as Abaqus/CAE® and ANSYS Workbench®. This ensures accuracy and consistency, avoids error, protects investments in simulation, and increases confidence in simulation results.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Materials specialists who prepare data for simulation
  • CAE engineers and managers.
