Materials Data for Simulation: A Bioengineering Use Case

Learning how to choose materials to meet certain design constraints and objectives is critical. Understanding the behavior of these materials under different forces and pressures is fundamental to meeting the requirements of the product they are being designed for. For example, in healthcare, we often wonder how a product will perform in the body, however, we are limited by pre-clinical studies. This is where a simulation tool is cost effective, especially when it comes to teaching.

This webinar spotlights how we use the materials selection methodology developed by Prof. Mike Ashby to identify the best material candidates for a joint hip replacement. We will use a computer-aided design model of the hip implant to generate simulation results. Additionally, we will vary the materials choices using the simulation tool and understand the best material choices. Lastly, we will compare analytical to numerical results.

  • Discover how to use EduPack for advanced materials selection of a hip implant.
  • Learn how to use computer-aided design for teaching.
  • Explore how to use Discovery, a simulation-driven tool, to answer critical design questions.
