Solving materials issues is not just about having data – you need the tools to help you compare, analyze, and visualize that data. Using CES Selector, you can explore and understand the benefits and limitations of the different material options and communicate your findings to non-experts in a compelling and engaging format. In this webinar, we’ll help you solve real materials problems – in particular, the need not only to find the right materials data, but to compare and visualize it to empower decision-making, collaboration, and communication.

What you will learn

  • Learn how to readily compare materials, identify candidates for a target application, and understand their benefits and limitations
  • See how the charting tools in CES Selector transform material datasheets (grids of data) into a format that can be easily understood by non-material experts
  • View a case study demonstration in which CES Selector is used to quickly evaluate material options
  • Understand the full range of materials data available with CES Selector.

Who should take part?

  • Material specialists, product engineers, product designers, research and development, and innovation groups.

Charlie Bream is the Senior Product Manager for CES Selector at Granta Design. 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 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 CES Selector

CES 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. The 2019 version features new links from an updated Senvol Database™ to Granta’s MaterialUniverse data, enabling easy comparison between additive manufacturing and conventional materials technologies.

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. New 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 CES Selector Certificate Program. These details make the real difference. Arrange a demonstration to see how CES Selector can help.
