Granta Design has updated its GRANTA MI composite data management product and introduced new tools in its CES Selector software.

The new GRANTA MI Composites Package brings together the tools for best-practice composite data management in research, testing, QA, and design. The data needed to characterise composites can be captured, automatically linked to related data, and easily tracked, accessed, and applied. Alongside in-house data, users can access composite reference data from the respected AGATE, NCAMP, and CMH-17 projects. This results in:

  • substantial time savings for materials engineers, who no longer need to hunt for data or repeat tests;
  • more effective use of corporate knowledge; and
  • less risk through the use of accurate, up-to-date data in design.

The CES Selector software offers a new Hybrid Synthesizer tool, which predicts the properties of sandwich panels, foams, lattices, and composites. Clear graphical property maps make it easy to compare these materials with other options so that designers can investigate the benefits of hybrid structures, focusing development of lightweight products on the most productive routes. Materials producers can compare their current or potential materials with the wider materials market. This guides materials development and helps technical marketing teams to communicate the benefits of their products.
