Get the materials data you need for simulation — instantly.

Ansys GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation is a new license option providing instant, clickable access to a general library of materials property data across the ANSYS family of simulation products, eliminating data search time and input errors. A single licence gives you access to over 700 materials.

GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation delivers:

  • Easy access to materials data, embedded in your familiar Ansys environment
  • Ready-to-use data — no reformatting required
  • Data you can rely on — provided by Granta, the leader in materials information
  • Consistency across Ansys multiphysics simulation

The data are collated, maintained and updated by the data products team at Ansys Granta. This Cambridge University spinoff is the leading provider of materials information and related software technology. GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation draws on proven sources, including Granta’s comprehensive MaterialUniverse database and the JAHM dataset from JAHM Software, Inc.
