The GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for Abaqus/CAE provides the ability for FE analysts to access and use approved materials property data directly from a best-practice managed resource – without leaving Abaqus/CAE, and without the need for error-prone file transfer.
Defined via the Material Data Management Consortium industry collaboration, the GRANTA MI software system meets the stringent requirements for accuracy, control, and traceability of materials data in the aerospace and defense sectors. Support is provided for each stage of the materials information lifecycle, leading to data provision for CAE:
Data from in-house testing and design experience, other proprietary sources, and trusted references can be imported
Materials professionals can analyze, certify, and maintain this information, publishing it in a secure and controlled manner
Abaqus/CAE users can browse the resulting database, and select and apply the relevant materials models, assured that they are fully traceable
