Granta MI : Materials Gateway for HyperMesh

News International-French

13 Nov 2014

Granta Design announced the release of Granta MI:Materials Gateway for HyperMesh, which provides quick, traceable access to materials data and applications within HyperMesh, the CAE pre-processor from Altair's HyperWorks suite. 

This new application further reinforces MI:Materials Gateway as the standard for accessing and applying managed materials data across a broad range of CAD, CAE, and PLM software.

Quality materials property data is a pre-requisite for accurate design and simulation. Granta has worked with engineering enterprises to develop best practice in managing, accessing, and applying materials property information. The resulting Granta MI software enables these companies to store and use both their corporate materials knowledge and an unrivalled catalog of Granta-supplied materials reference data on thousands of metals, plastics, ceramics, composites, and natural materials.

Granta MI:Materials Gateway for HyperMesh appears as an embedded application within HyperMesh, putting this authoritative materials information into the hands of simulation engineers. It complements the flexibility of HyperMesh in supporting multiple CAE solvers. Switch solver profiles in HyperMesh, and the MI:Materials Gateway does likewise—presenting CAE material models relevant to the current solver profile. This ensures the right materials data, in the right format, with full traceability, when and where it is needed.

Granta MI:Materials Gateway for HyperMesh ensures traceability to the company’s “gold source” materials data. At any time, authorized users can access and retrieve additional information on chosen materials via the live link to the master database – in some cases from hundreds of available properties on each material. Whether for simple linear-elastic analysis or full strain-rate dependent stress-strain models for crash simulation, control over versioning of materials properties provides notifications directly in HyperMesh if materials properties used in FEA have since been updated.
