What is GRANTA Selector?
GRANTA Selector is the new name for GRANTA Selector – the standard tool for materials selection and graphical analysis of materials properties in industry. At universities, it is used in research projects to quickly identify solutions to complex material issues.
It is built on the same principles as the GRANTA EduPack software but provides access to the materials property databases used in industry and is licensed for use in research.
Key benefits of GRANTA Selector
An encyclopaedia of materials properties, from Granta Design and other leading information providers— metals, plastics, composites, ceramics, and natural materials.
Quick access to information, with keyword searching tuned for materials terminology and designations, or materials property queries. e.g. find a specific material grade; or find and export data for use in simulation.
Materials property charting tools enable you to quickly create interactive charts: explore, understand, and communicate about materials and their properties.
Rational materials selection tools that make it straightforward to apply the systematic selection methods developed by Prof Mike Ashby.
Compare materials from the database with each other or with your own materials using features such as comparison tables, or the ‘find similar’ tool.
With GRANTA Selector, you can customize the software based on your research requirements. Choose from:
- Advanced materials data bundles: Metals, Polymers, Composites, Aero, Medical, Additive Manufacturing (see below)
- Optional software tools: FE Exporters, Eco Audit Tool, Synthesizer Tool, GRANTA Constructor
