Materials Selection for an Oar Jupyter Notebook 

The combination of the Ashby Selection Methodology and property charts from Ansys Granta EduPack is a highly visual way to logically select materials for a design based on requirements. This virtual exercise walks through the process of selecting the material for a rowing oar using the

Ashby Selection Methodology via a Jupyter Notebook interface. Interactive elements for engaging with the exercise, including static property charts, are added using Python script. This resource is specifically targeted at the pre-university level, for those without an Ansys Granta EduPack license. No previous Python experience is required to run this lab.
