In this hands-on workshop, attendees will access a comprehensive library of materials data; discover tools to help chart and analyze property data; and support better materials decisions using a systematic multi-objective material selection approach.

Attendees will learn how to find technical materials property data (metals, ceramics, polymers, composites) and processes data (e.g., additive manufacturing). The instructors will also show how this data can be used for materials selection in research and teaching activities taking into account conflicting objectives, e.g., minimizing mass or cost and maximizing performance. Elements of sustainable development and green engineering will be taken into account as well.

A time-limited license of the CES Selector software will be distributed before the workshop for attendees’ own Windows laptops. Attendees will also get access to Granta Design’s extensive materials education teaching resource community. For more information about the CES Selector Software please explore the information links below.

CES Selector – used by leading companies worldwide (ex., Boeing, Honeywell, GE, SKF), research labs (ex., NASA, U.S. Airforce Research Lab, Los Alamos National Lab), and universities (ex., MIT, University of Michigan, Cambridge University) around the world to make optimal materials decisions as well as find, compare and visualise materials data.

CES EduPack – teaching resource developed specifically for materials education in engineering, design and science. Used at more than 200 universities in the United States and 1,000 universities worldwide, it supports teaching through all levels of undergraduate and postgraduate education.

  • Professors, educators, and teaching assistants in areas including: materials science and engineering, sustainability, design, mechanical and bio engineering, and manufacturing
  • Material scientists and engineers in need of materials data and selection tools for academic and/or industrial projects
  • Overview of materials and processes data libraries: metals, polymers, ceramics, composites and processes like additive manufacturing, injection molding, casting, etc.
  • Visual material selection methodology
  • Case studies for optimal material selection:
    • Bioengineering applications
    • Light weighting for industrial applications (e.g. automotive and aerospace)
    • Sustainable development and green engineering
    • Processes (e.g. additive manufacturing)
Luca Masi is an aerospace engineer working at Granta Design in Cambridge as development manager. He has previously collaborated with the French Space Agency on software development for bio-inspired space trajectory optimization and on computational techniques for engineering decision-making at the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde (UK). He is author of book chapters for American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on these subjects. He also has R&D experience in spacecraft propulsion systems. Masi holds a master’s degree in space engineering and a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Pisa (Italy), and is completing a Ph.D. in computational techniques for aerospace engineering applications. Masi has privately tutored more than 20 university students across engineering universities in London.
Jorge Sobral has a background in biomedical engineering with a M.Sc. in biomaterials and biomechanics and a Ph.D. in materials science from the University of Cambridge. His technical background is multidisciplinary, and he has been part of several successful research projects, particularly in the field of bone tissue engineering and medical devices. Currently, he manages the account management team and works with research oriented universities in the United States, Brazil, and Portugal. He has also been involved in the Materials Genome Initiative in the United States.

Granta Design is a spin-off company from the Engineering Department of Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Originating from Mike Ashby’s work and founded in 1994, Granta supports hundreds of engineering enterprises and thousands of educators and researchers worldwide.
