Mechanical engineers create exciting products and solve complex problems. Choosing the right materials is crucial to their success. With over 200,000 engineering materials now available, there are a lot to choose from. Teaching undergraduate students how to select the best materials is a challenge. Mike Ashby’s textbook “Materials Selection in Mechanical Design” introduces a powerful methodology for systematic material selection. Now in its fifth edition, the textbook has been adopted worldwide. Teaching students to apply this methodology is much easier when you have comprehensive materials data and suitable software tools.
Join Susannah Cooke and Luca Masi to learn how Ansys GRANTA EduPack helps academics engage students, deepen their understanding of materials selection with real-world projects and prepares them for careers in industry.
