BUSINESS BENEFITS

“Granta Materials Data for Simulation puts validated materials input data right at users’ fingertips within their Ansys simulation tools” – Carrie Mowatt, Ansys Granta Product Management 

Simulation can do incredible things in the world of product development. Simulation models refine and validate products in the development stage, ensuring they are optimized across manufacturability, durability, sustainability and more.

Accurate simulations require accurate and reliable materials property data. Finding the right materials data can be time-consuming and costly. With a broad coverage of material types and property data, Granta MDS allows users to take simulation to the next level with instant access to consistent, validated and ready-to-use data.

Curated for engineers by our team of material data analysts, Granta MDS provides you access to richer data and tools, allowing for stronger simulations.

Release Date: July 2021 R2
