Reliable design and simulation needs reliable materials property data. Finding data that you can trust is time consuming and difficult. You often need to transform that data into models that your simulation software can use, risking errors. In this webinar, we’ll explore the diverse materials data provided by ANSYS Granta, covering metals, plastics, composites, and more. We’ll see how to access this data seamlessly within simulation tools. And we’ll demonstrate the value of combining data with tools to help you narrow down materials options and to ensure use of approved, traceable company data.

What you will learn

  • Get a tour of the Granta materials data library: metals, plastics, composites, additive manufacturing, and industry materials data catalogs; from Granta and other leading materials data providers
  • Learn how this data is integrated with materials selection software and other desktop engineering tools
  • See how to build your own materials database, a single source of company materials information combining in-house data with Granta reference data
  • ANSYS users: see GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation, a data set now updated to support structural analysis (ANSYS Mechanical) and electromagnetic simulation (ANSYS Maxwell).

Who should take part?

  • Materials experts
  • Simulation analysts
  • Designers


Dr. Carrie Mowatt is the Product Manager for Data Products at ANSYS Granta. After completing her PhD on dye-doped liquid crystal lasers at Wolfson College in the University of Cambridge, she moved to the Royal Society of Chemistry. She started in academic journals publishing and became Product Manager for Databases before joining Granta in 2019.

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 GRANTA Selector can help.
