Granta Design announced a new software product to provide materials data for simulation engineers, developed through Granta’s partnership with ANSYS. The new GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for ANSYS Workbench enables validated materials property models to be quickly and consistently accessed and applied from within ANSYS software, providing full traceability of the materials inputs to simulations, the company says.
The solution can capture, analyze, and manage all of a company’s corporate materials data from testing, research and development, or previous design experience. This data is complemented by Granta’s catalog of materials property reference data, which covers metals, plastics, ceramics, composite materials, and more. With the new MI:Materials Gateway, any authorized ANSYS Workbench user can browse and search this information resource within their routine workflows. They can then select approved CAE models and apply them directly to their simulation projects.
“Our customers regularly tell us that the right materials property data and models are critical to the accuracy of simulations,” said Barry Christensen, director of product management, ANSYS. “Since finding this information can consume valuable time, this integration product from Granta Design provides the information quickly, reliably, and directly within projects’ simulation workflow in ANSYS Workbench. Furthermore, the software illustrates the openness of the ANSYS Workbench framework to extend and support third-party applications that are critical to users solving challenging engineering problems.”
