IDES Inc. (Laramie, Wyo.), developer of a Web-based plastics materials database, and Firehole Technologies Inc. (Laramie, Wyo.), a developer of simulation technologies for composite materials and structures, have announced a strategic partnership to develop a Web-based searchable composite materials database.
"There is a significant need among the engineering design community to be able to quickly locate candidate composite materials, compare them to similar materials, and access reliable material data for those materials," says Jerad Stack, CEO of Firehole Technologies.
Mike Kmetz, president of IDES Inc., adds, "Firehole Technologies has extensive actual test data for composite materials, making it an excellent fit for our database technologies that are specifically suited for managing complex materials information."
