Intro paragraph: Quickly finding and comparing materials for design and simulation is now easy with Ansys GRANTA MI Pro. This software solution helps CAD and simulation engineers to be more efficient and reduce the risk of using the wrong data by storing data in the right format and integrating it with existing systems. You can also easily incorporate your valuable in-house materials data in an accessible materials database. This webinar teaches you how to start building consistent material intelligence and benefit from it fast.
Increase productivity by creating a single source of materials information, enabling your team to find data fast and avoid duplicated effort
Increase design speed with and minimize data entry errors with no manual typing, no Excel files
Access useful generic reference data to support the early phases of simulation
Add your own in-house data in one place and format, creating a single source of approved materials for quick access and assignment, thereby minimizing errors
Ensure materials consistency across your teams and between CAD and CAE
Create this database and best practices with GRANTA MI Pro, from importing and compiling in-house materials data to assigning them directly in CAD and CAE
Product design involves the choice of materials, the processes used to shape them, transport modes, characteristics of the way the product is used and of its disposal at end of life. All of these have environmental, economic and social implications. Environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC) methods have evolved to quantify the first two. Less familiar is the emerging methodology for social life cycle assessment (S-LCA), which is assuming a growing role in project planning as its importance in reaching United Nations Sustainable Development Goals is recognized.
It is not an easy subject to teach. This webinar will introduce a Social Impact Audit Tool we have developed following the UNEP/SETAC “Guidelines for Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) of Products” (2009). The new tool complements the Ansys GRANTA EduPack Eco Audit Tool for a streamlined LCA and costing tool. Its primary aim is one of education, introducing students to the methodology, providing data about social norms and practices in the nations of the world and providing case studies for activity-based learning.
The tool flags social hotspots highlighting the points in the life of a product at which potential harmful practices or opportunities to enhance well-being exist. It was trialed last year in two universities in the United States. On completion, the lecturers provided information on the following points:
Reactions of users on the value of the tool
Ease of use and clarity of the information provided to users
Changes or additional resources to make it easier to introduce S-LCA to students
Join us for this free, 1-hour webinar to investigate materials information management. Learn how you can manage the full materials data lifecycle, from test data, traceability, design and beyond. Workflow tools ensure smooth capture, processing and approval of data, information and expertise, so you can fully integrate the flow of materials information into your business processes.
Product development organizations are always working on using better, lighter, cheaper materials in their designs. With rapid adoption of newer materials, having the right material data, managing it and making it accessible to the design and development organization becomes extremely important. Ansys GRANTA MI is a single, gold-source of materials information to ensure the accuracy and traceability of data for simulation teams and product designers across the product development life cycle.
In this webinar, you will learn how the new GRANTA MI 2020 addresses material information challenges across your enterprise:
Learn how Granta MI can be used by product designers, simulation teams, materials teams and IT administrators to do their jobs faster and with fewer errors.
See how GRANTA MI can help you deliver on the promise of pervasive simulation, with materials information you can trust, when and where you need it.
Restricted substances or materials-at-risk can cause huge problems for product development organizations. If you don’t respond to regulations like REACH or TCSA, the results can be multi-million-dollar costs, product delays, and reputational damage. In this webinar, leading aerospace organization Embraer provide a case study showing what they are doing to remove risk from their materials and processes and to consider compliance during design, where change costs least for most impact.
The aerospace and defense industry leverages a wide range of cutting-edge technologies to tackle, safety, cost and many other challenges. A critical area that applies to all these challenges is that of materials, where making an informed decision could mean the difference between project success or failure.
