Granta in ANSYS Workbench

Dr. Ahmed Elghandour

Materials are an essential input to any FEA or CFD model. Defining the right properties of used materials helps in improving the model accuracy. As ANSYS understands the importance of this issue, it recently acquired Granta, a very rich material library, and now you can add it to Workbench and use one of the thousands of materials and alloys available in Granta. Using Granta helps the user to compare materials/alloys based on their properties, cost, and manufacturability. Using Granta’s tool, CES selector, the user can either look for the material of interest and obtain its properties, or he can list the suitable material(s) for his design based on the range of materials properties.
