An overview of the CES Selector software from Granta Design. CES Selector is a PC application that enables materials experts and product development teams to find and apply materials property data. You can make better decisions in early-stage design or re-design, reduce time-to-market, and increase confidence during development.

Learn how to select Materials from the new Matereality web database when using SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional 2014 or SolidWorks Simulation Premium 2014. Quick Tip presented by Bruce Shawler of GoEngineer (www.goengineer.com).
Learn more about the fundamental elements to consider when selecting engineering materials to provide the best value to your applications and components. Delivered by Jody Walker, Business Development, Nylacast at the 2014 Engineering Design Show held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK.
This video will take you through 10 different ideas of things you can do with your students using CES EduPack. This will be of interest to both those that have not seen CES EduPack before and those that are using it but would appreciate being shown some new tricks.
Intro to Ansys and selection of material Please visit www.siemens.com/solidedge
Material selection is a step in the process of designing any physical object. In the context of product design, the main goal of material selection is to minimize cost while meeting product performance goals. Systematic selection of the best material for a given application begins with properties and costs of candidate materials. For example, a thermal blanket must have poor thermal conductivity in order to minimize heat transfer for a given temperature difference. Systematic selection for applications requiring multiple criteria is more complex. For example, a rod which should be stiff and light requires a material with high Young's modulus and low density. If the rod will be pulled in tension, the specific modulus, or modulus divided by density , will determine the best material. But because a plate's bending stiffness scales as its thickness cubed, the best material for a stiff and light plate is determined by the cube root of stiffness divided by density . For a stiff beam in bending the material index is . This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video
