Utilizing Materials Selection and Simulation in Design
Holistic product design must consdering the structural needs, material needs, and environmental impact. This can be challenging to teach to students, especially when various degree programs often focus on specific portions of the design process more than others. This lecture presentation showcases a Sustainable Product Design Methodolgy, which combines materials selection (building on the Ashby Selection Methodology), structural analysis via simulation, and a simplified LCA and trade-off analysis. Each step of the process is supported by Ansys software products, such as Ansys Granta EduPack and Ansys Discovery. Learn more about how this can be utiilized for design projects in this lecture presentation.
