To develop an optimal product you need to couple optimal design with optimal materials selection. CES Selector has for years been the industry standard materials selection software. Coming soon, GRANTA Selector 2020 is the successor to CES Selector, with a fresh look and enhanced functionality – including improving the all-important connection between materials decisions and your design and simulation tools. Join us to see GRANTA Selector 2020 in action in a materials selection case study.

What you will learn

  • What is GRANTA Selector, the successor product to the industry-standard CES Selector for materials selection?
  • How to ensure optimal material selection: see a case study
  • What’s new for 2020: for example, an enhanced and restructured metals database for selection and equivalency studies
  • How to export materials data for use in a wide range of simulation codes
  • ANSYS users will see new integration with ANSYS Workbench.

Who should take part?

  • CES Selector users – find out what’s new for you in the upcoming GRANTA Selector 2020.

  • Product design and development engineers – see how to apply the standard tool for optimal materials selection.

  • Simulation analysts – see how save time by screening materials options before performing simulation, and quickly finding the data you need.

Dr. Charlie Bream is the Senior Product Manager for GRANTA Selector at ANSYS. After completing his PhD on recycling of thermoset composites at Brunel University, he spent 15 years in industry working on the development of lightweight materials and structures for British Aerospace (Space Systems), Pera International, and NXT before joining ANSYS Granta in 2007.

About Granta Design

Granta Design is the leader in materials information technology, helping engineering enterprises to manage vital data and information about materials, analyze it to develop ‘material intelligence’, and apply that intelligence to make smart decisions across product design and development. We support the entire product lifecycle by integrating materials knowledge into design, simulation, and PLM, supporting 'cradle-to-cradle' product engineering.

About GRANTA Selector

GRANTA Selector is different. It combines a unique range of materials data with specialist tools to help you solve real materials problems. It has been improved and optimized for more than 20 years to deal with the subtleties of material selection. Pre-screen materials before simulation. Focus on the likeliest materials candidates – export data to support simulation for a wider range of materials across computational environments.

Performance indices for longitudinal and flexural vibration enable you to consider vibrational properties during selection – important, for example, in automotive applications. Updated support on Granta’s eLearning site includes content for the Professional Level of the GRANTA Selector Certificate Program. These details make the real difference. Arrange a demonstration to see how GRANTA Selector can help.
