Intelligent materials selection

Ensure exhaustive, repeatable and auditable materials selection. Find similar materials to current choices or explore the entire available materials space. Rapidly compare material choices and balance competing performance requirements.

Comprehensive materials data

An extensive array of interlinked materials data includes the comprehensive and comparable MaterialUniverse™ dataset with technical, economic and environmental information for thousands of engineering materials. Additional detailed information is available on metals, polymers, composites, coatings, electromagnetic materials, medical materials, aerospace materials – including design data, manufacturer’s datasheets, standards-based information and test data.

FE Export and Ansys Workbench integration

Seamlessly feed simulation-ready engineering data into Ansys Workbench as part of an integrated workflow. Export data to Ansys Discovery, Ansys Granta MI Pro or a variety of third-party CAD/CAE software solutions.

Eco design audit

Straightforward evaluation of the environmental impact of your product and its component. Identify key areas to focus on, and provide guidance on how to reduce embodied energy and CO2 footprint at all stages of the product lifecycle.

Part cost estimation

Estimate manufacturing costs at the conceptual design phase. Account for materials, manufacturing method and batch size.

Create hybrid materials

Predict the performance and properties of hybrid materials and structures and compare them with standard materials. Comes with several built-in models and structures, or create your own. Or, predict the key properties and performance of several multi-cell battery module configurations and carry out equivalent comparisons between them.

Selector for research and academia

Compare your in-house experimental research data with built-in comprehensive materials data. Synthesize hybrid materials and assess their properties. Data visualization and analysis tools to guide through the whole research project. Support advanced educational reports and all kinds of publications.
