2022 Iberoamerican Materials Selection Challenge Final Reports
This resource collects the reports of the finalist projects of the 1st Iberoamerican Material Selection Challenge. These projects were submitted by student teams from universities in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico 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. Carlos Medina Muñoz (Universidad de Concepción, Chile), Prof. Cesar Roberto de Farias Azevedo (POLI-USP, Brazil) and Prof. Germán Alcalá Penadés (UCM, Spain). The final presentations were held at the Moncloa Campus of the Polytechnic University of Madrid on November 2nd, 2022.
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 consumer products, bioengineering, energy generation, aerospace and automotive. 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.
