Ansys Granta Selector materials selection software lets you innovate, resolve materials issues, reduce costs and validate your materials choices. Select the best materials for your application and then export simulation-ready materials data.
Make informed materials decisions and communicate results with confidence.
Use the right materials to improve performance, reduce risk and cost while increasing customer satisfaction. Ansys Granta Selector provides powerful tools and extensive materials selection databases for intelligent decision making. Trusted by engineers and materials experts, you can rapidly find the best materials for any application then directly export materials property data.
Ansys Granta Selector’s systematic materials selection methods allow you to compare, visualize and set limits on properties, balance competing performance requirements and rapidly eliminate unsuitable candidates. Locate suitable grades, standards and suppliers and communicate your results with confidence.
" Using Granta Selector we're able to do quick materials properties comparisons: mechanical, thermal, electrical…"

Radiall is a high-tech company, producing complex optical and electrical connectors for demanding service conditions. Every material has different performance requirements, manufacturing and quality standards. Radiall turned to Ansys Granta Selector to meet these challenges so that every materials decision was exhaustive, repeatable and auditable. Balancing competing property requirements (mechanical, thermal and electrical performance) was necessary for developing and improving these components.
Using Ansys Granta Selector, Radiall rapidly identified suitable materials for high-performance electrical connectors. Quick property comparisons to choose the best candidates helped make their materials experts more productive. Simultaneously, they reduced the risk of restricted substances in their products and exported simulation-ready data from the JAHM dataset allowing simulations to be more ‘relevant and accurate’.
Release Date: July 2022
More powerful material selection tools. More of the latest material data. Exportable to more Ansys solvers.
Include user-defined data on material and process environmental impacts, embodied energy and CO2 footprint, for a more accurate streamlined LCA (life cycle assessment).
Improve decision-making with logic and customizable material family envelopes for more informed material selection.
Granta Selector now exports critical material property data to Ansys Fluent and Ansys Sherlock with improved integration with engineering data in Ansys Workbench.
Ansys Granta Selector combines extensive, relevant materials data with a range of versatile tools to implement powerful, logical materials selection. Rapidly search and filter materials based on an unlimited number of property requirements in our data. Selections can be plotted and easily visualized for optimal performance. Comparative tools let you compare different materials side-by-side with significant differences clearly highlighted. Whether you are looking to reduce cost, lower your environmental impact, overcome in-service problems or simply find better materials for the job, Granta Selector is the right software.
Ansys Granta Selector provides powerful tools and data to help you make informed materials choices.
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.
Our extensive array of interlinked materials data includes our 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.
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.
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.
Estimate manufacturing costs at the conceptual design phase. Account for materials, manufacturing method and batch size.
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.
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.
