MaterialUniverse

Access Granta’s unique generic database of engineering, economic and eco property profiles for thousands of materials. MaterialUniverseTM allows for a like-to-like comparison across material and processing possibilities. Additional sustainability data from ecoinvent and more additive manufacturing data with Senvol™ is included.

JAHM Curve Data

Specialist Temperature-dependent property data for thousands of datasheets. Ideal as input data for simulation. Included as part of our Granta Core Data.

Metals

Our Advanced Metals Data includes a combination of Design, Test and Standards and Specifications data.

  • Global Metals Specifications incorporates materials data from ASM International, the German Steel Institute, UK Steel and WMI.
  • Design data for Boiler and pressure vessel data from ASME.
  • Creep and fatigue data from Japan’s NIMs – exclusively for Granta MI Enterprise.

Standards and specifications data on powder metallurgy and test data for sheet steels is also available.

Polymers

This set of supplier grade data from well-respected spec sheets, gives you access to hundreds of thousands of resins and tens of thousands of polymer additives. This data enables designers to compare the properties and processing of plastics and elastomers, in addition to selecting the appropriate additives.

Now with over 105,000 polymers including simulation ready data for true stress and creep model parameters. A new subset called Nonlinear simulation enables users to easily find records with simulation-ready attributes.

Composites

With our composite data, users gain access to data from manufacturers and leading research projects including Mil-Handbook-17 and Firehole Composites for standards and specifications. Traceable composite data from the NCAMP and AGATE projects to support qualification, equivalency, and design with the Composite QED, is only available for our Granta MI Enterprise product.

Additive Manufacturing

Leverage comprehensive supplier grade data on additive manufacturing machines and compatible materials from Senvol DatabaseTM.

Aerospace

With our aero data, users have access to authoritative design data from MMPDS, in addition to specialist data on relevant coatings.

Restricted Substance

Analyze information on restricted substance risk of materials and processes, environmental impact and supply risk. Available with the Restricted Substance solution with Granta MI Enterprise.

Medical

Specialist data with ASM Medical Materials  for cardiovascular, orthopaedic, neurological, surgical, ENT, urological devices available as part of the Medical Bundle with Granta MI. Granta Selector has access to the on-line version.

Human Biological Materials including mechanical properties of human tissues, including bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, circulatory and dental tissues is available for Granta MI Enterprise only.

ESDU

European design-strength design data on aerospace metallic materials. Purchasable as a standalone option within Granta MI or Granta Selector.

Eco Design

Specialistdata forkey materials indicators and background information from ecoinvent. Purchasable as a standalone option within Granta MI or Granta Selector.

Electromagnetic

Search, select and export a new range of 7,200+ electromagnetic material records to Ansys Electronics Desktop tool or Motor-CAD. Select from data for printed circuit board (PCB) laminates, soft magnetic alloys, permanent magnets, and EM shielding/absorbing materials.
