CES Selector provides a comprehensive set of materials property data and graphical tools to apply that data in optimal materials selection. If you’re solving materials problems, or looking to replace a material, it can identify alternatives with similar property profiles to your current material.

Such methods are useful whenever you have a materials choice to make. If you use simulation as part of your development process, they can be particularly valuable to screen materials options before embarking on simulation projects, focusing that work on the most productive pathways. In this webinar, we’ll see a case study of CES Selector being used in that role – not only helping to identify candidate materials, but delivering data that can be used as input to your simulations.

Join this webinar to learn how ensuring the right materials choices can benefit your organization. 

You will learn how to:

  • Access ‘complete’ and comparable data on all classes of engineering materials – covering technical, economic and environmental properties
  • Identify / validate that you are using the most appropriate materials – i.e. start your simulation with the best material
  • Combine CES Selector with ANSYS Mechanical to develop the best products.

Charlie Bream is the Senior Product Manager for CES Selector at Granta Design. After completing his PhD on recycling of thermoset composites at Brunel University, he spent 15 years in industry working on the development of lightweight materials and structures for British Aerospace (Space Systems), Pera International, and NXT before joining Granta in 2007.

Richard Mitchell is the principal product marketing manager for structures. He joined ANSYS in 2006 working in pre-sales and support roles across a wide range of industries. Before this, Richard was an ANSYS user working for a high-tech company in the UK. He worked as an analyst on space and vacuum tube technologies

About Granta Design

Granta Design is the leader in materials information technology, helping engineering enterprises to manage vital data and information about materials, analyze it to develop ‘material intelligence’, and apply that intelligence to make smart decisions across product design and development. We support the entire product lifecycle by integrating materials knowledge into design, simulation, and PLM, supporting 'cradle-to-cradle' product engineering.

About CES Selector

CES Selector is different. It combines a unique range of materials data with specialist tools to help you solve real materials problems. It has been improved and optimized for more than 20 years to deal with the subtleties of material selection. The 2019 version features new links from an updated Senvol Database™ to Granta’s MaterialUniverse data, enabling easy comparison between additive manufacturing and conventional materials technologies.

Pre-screen materials before simulation. Focus on the likeliest materials candidates – export data to support simulation for a wider range of materials across computational environments. New performance indices for longitudinal and flexural vibration enable you to consider vibrational properties during selection – important, for example, in automotive applications. Updated support on Granta’s eLearning site includes content for the Professional Level of the CES Selector Certificate Program. These details make the real difference. Arrange a demonstration to see how CES Selector can help.
