GRANTA EduPack 2020 Introductory

Designed for introducing materials topics and supporting interdisciplinary teaching across a range of engineering, science, design and related courses, the Introductory edition provides:

Data — the core MaterialUniverse database and a selection of introductory-level, topic-specific databases. See more on introductory data here.

Software tools — standard tools for interacting with the data, plotting, selection and eco audit calculations. See more on the standard tools here.

Teaching resources — lectures, exercises, papers, case studies and more. Browse introductory resources here.

The Introductory edition supports key learning outcomes for introductory materials teaching, helping students to understand:

  • Classes of materials, their properties and the underlying reasons for those properties
  • Systematic selection of materials and processes using constraints and objectives
  • The impact of products on the environment and how to design in a way that reduces this impact
  • A broad range of materials — biological, functional and fibers, as well as structural materials
  • The real-life applications of materials, across multiple disciplines of engineering and design
  • The impacts of material processing on structure, properties and performance
