Granta Design (Cambridge, UK) has launched GRANTA MI:Simulation, a new software package that is said to deliver accurate materials data for simulation. It is designed to provide fully traceable data to help simulation analysts find and use the right materials data. The new package is based on the GRANTA MI materials information management system. The MI:Simulation package adds new tools to analyze materials data and prepare the resulting models for computer-aided engineering (CAE). GRANTA MI:Data Analysis Apps will support key tasks, such as curve smoothing, averaging and model fitting. These tasks usually need to be tailored to a user company’s specific properties and material types of interest, and to their in-house or preferred analysis methods and models. A sample App is provided to extract tensile test data from a corporate database, process it and make the resulting models available for simulation. The final step is to make this data available to the simulation analysts that need it. The GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway software enables access from directly within CAE environments including Abaqus/CAE, ANSYS Workbench, HyperMesh, and NX. The MI:Simulation package includes the user’s choice of MI:Materials Gateway, now enhanced to further ease the workflow of finding and assigning relevant CAE models. For other systems, users can export materials cards from GRANTA MI, with automatic data transforms and manipulation into the formats read by software such as LS-DYNA, Nastran, PAM-CRASH, PAM-STAMP, Patran, and RADIOSS.
