Take Your Simulation Models to the Next Level with Granta MDS
“Granta Materials Data for Simulation puts validated materials input data right at users’ fingertips within their Ansys simulation tools” – Carrie Mowatt, Ansys Granta Product Management
Simulation can do incredible things in the world of product development. Simulation models refine and validate products in the development stage, ensuring they are optimized across manufacturability, durability, sustainability and more.
Accurate simulations require accurate and reliable materials property data. Finding the right materials data can be time-consuming and costly. With a broad coverage of material types and property data, Granta MDS allows users to take simulation to the next level with instant access to consistent, validated and ready-to-use data.
Curated for engineers by our team of material data analysts, Granta MDS provides you access to richer data and tools, allowing for stronger simulations.
Release Date: July 2022
Granta MDS, the simple add-on for Ansys flagship simulation tools, has new enhanced data for every solver.
New material records suitable for all Ansys flagship solvers include - polymers, liquids, metals, and more.
New magnetic materials from Sumitomo SMC and Toda Kogyo are added, including core loss data and B-H curves.
Granta MDS provides you access to valuable materials data, broad coverage of materials classes and more. With this material database, engineers are enabled to create stronger simulations with trusted data that is accurate and ready-to-use. For easy access, MDS is embedded directly into your Ansys interface.
With up to 2,600 Generic and Producer materials datasheets available, Granta MDS takes simulation to the next level.
Ensure accurate simulations with materials data that is reliable and consistent, curated by Ansys Granta’s team of leading materials information experts. This data comes from sources like our unique MaterialsUniverse™ database and the JAHM simulation data set.
