2023 International Materials Selection Challenge Final Reports
This resource collects the reports of the finalist projects of the Ansys International Material Selection Challenge. These projects were submitted by student teams from universities in Brazil, Egypt and Spain. Each proposal was supervised by a professor and reviewed by members of the Ansys Academic Program before being presented in front of a jury composed of Prof. Elena Maria Tejado Garrido (UPM, Spain), Sara Onrubia Garcia (Ansys Spain), Prof. Julio Cesar Dutra (Centro Universitário FEI, Brazil), Prof. Jean-Dominique Guérin (Université Polytechnique des Hauts de France, France) and Prof. Germán Alcalá Penadés (UCM, Spain). The final presentations were held at the Moncloa Campus of the Polytechnic University of Madrid on November 8th, 2023.
The project reports collected here are meant to serve as inspiration for students and educators working on material selection projects. They span a broad range of applications and industries, such as civil engineering, consumer products, bioengineering, energy generation and aerospace. They demonstrate how Ansys Granta EduPack can foster innovation and optimal product designs, with examples using many of its tools as well as other Ansys simulation software.
