In recent years, materials have emerged as a focus of architectural pedagogy. This webinar examines a framework for a pedagogical approach to materials by design.
Road freight is a major means of goods transportation, and one that is particularly difficult to make fossil-energy-free. It has been noted that a reduction in fuel consumption can be expected just by reducing the empty weight of the trailer.
SusCritMat is a European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) RawMaterials funded education project which develops teaching modules on critical raw materials and their sustainable management, taking into account the different perspectives as well as the entire value chain.
Ansys GRANTA EduPack Case Study: Selection and Sustainability of High-Temperature Aerospace Materials
In this case study webinar for academics, we will explore high-temperature materials, in particular nickel- and cobalt-based superalloys and technical ceramics, for aerospace and automotive applications.
This webinar will introduce a Social Impact Audit Tool we have developed following the UNEP/SETAC “Guidelines for Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) of Products” (2009). The new tool complements the Ansys GRANTA EduPack Eco Audit Tool for a streamlined LCA and costing tool.
Ansys GRANTA EduPack is the leading software used by educators at over 1,400 universities to introduce engineering students to materials and materials selection for mechanical design. This webinar will show how the software can help you in engaging and inspiring students as they learn about materials science, engineering, design and sustainability.
Remote teaching, involving online lectures and student activities, has become a necessity at most universities. This webinar case study shares insights and tips on how to engage students remotely using the new GRANTA EduPack with an example of a simple product – a chainsaw.
Engineers solve critical problems and design new products. To accomplish this effectively, they need a strong understanding of materials and how they are used. Materials science, however, is a theory-heavy discipline, which can make learning the fundamentals less engaging and more challenging for new students. But it does not have to be that way.
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.
In this webinar, we will show how Ansys GRANTA EduPack can be used to engage students with sustainability-focused projects. We will also explore how teaching with Ansys GRANTA EduPack can contribute to students’ skills development and help them to think critically.
Ansys GRANTA EduPack is the world’s leading resource for materials teaching in engineering and design courses. It provides a comprehensive database of materials and process information, powerful software tools, lectures, projects, exercises, and supports a wide range of leading textbooks
