Add Granta MI to Your Toolbox for Instant Materials Information
For the first time, engineers can gain instant, accurate access to the Granta materials database within Ansys Workbench™. This feature enables engineers to speed up their materials selection and improve workflows.
In late 2018, Ansys acquired Granta Design, the premier provider of materials information technology. Through the MI Materials Gateway window within Ansys Workbench, users can access validated materials. This includes information in several categories, including steel, plastics, and aerospace.
If you know which material you’re looking for, you can select it directly. Or you can search with keywords like “aluminum 6061,” and the material’s property datasheets will be shown to you.
Also, you can ask Granta to show you materials with defined specs, like yield strength above or below a certain value. After this, users can then compare and contrast different materials.
Access to Engineering Materials Database
The information and models can be accessed and imported directly to your Ansys project, eliminating the risk of errors. In addition, full traceability information is included.
Best of all, the integration is simple, quick, and useful for a variety of projects.
