GRANTA EduPack software tools

Software tools enable students to apply data in the GRANTA EduPack database to learn more about materials.

Standard tools

The following standard software tools are available in both the Introductory edition of GRANTA EduPack and the full edition of the software.

Browse

Students can explore the world of materials – search and browse to find everything from pictures of materials in action to detailed property data.

Chart

Understand and engage with materials and their properties – make beautiful property charts to support exercises and projects.

Select

Learn about materials in the real world by applying rational, systematic methods to select materials for specific engineering applications.

Eco Audit Tool

Think sustainably. Evaluates the environmental impact of a product. Test design scenarios and understand the importance of material and process choices.

Other standard tools

  • Science notes: integrated textbook-style explanations of material properties help students relate practical applications to the theory.
  • Performance index finder: plot performance indices for materials selection without having to derive them from first principles; speeds up project work.

Advanced tools

The following tools support tasks and projects beyond introductory level use, and are available only in the full edition of GRANTA EduPack.

Synthesizer

Apply models to the data and add the results to property charts. EduPack includes models for predicting the properties of hybrid materials, enabling comparison with conventional materials, and for predicting part cost, supporting study of the economics of engineering.  You can add your own models.  Ideal for advanced projects.

Other advanced tools

  • Reference record: set a material as a reference for guidance in charts, tables, and when setting selection criteria.
  • Find similar: search for materials with a similar property profile to the reference material.
  • Comparison tables: put two or more material datasheets side-by-side and highlight significant differences.
  • Engineering Solver: helps to specify engineering requirements when selecting materials.
  • Advanced Eco Audit: additional calculation options for more advanced projects.

Arrange a meeting

The best way to evaluate EduPack is to see it in action. Arrange an online meeting during which we can discuss your teaching and show you how GRANTA EduPack can help.
