Phase II of composite data management project extends support for innovation

Granta Design : 04 October, 2013  (Company News)
Granta Design has announced Phase II of a Project to enable effective management of composite materials information, providing essential support for organisations that are innovating in their use of composites. The Composite Data Management project is driven by the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC), a collaboration that develops and applies software to manage mission-critical materials data in the aerospace, defense, and energy sectors. Granta will also speak on this topic at the SAMPE Tech Conference in Wichita, KS (21 to 24 October 2013).
Phase II of composite data management project extends support for innovation
In Phase I of the Project, members of the MDMC’s Composites Subcommittee (which include Boeing, GE-Aviation, Honeywell, NASA, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Rolls-Royce) guided design of a database structure to capture the complex interconnected data needed to characterise composite materials. They also specified requirements for tools to help them apply this information traceably and securely within their organizations. Granta Design used these findings to develop composite data management templates and tools within the leading materials information management system, Granta MI.
 
Five areas were identified where composites pose a particular data management challenge: ensuring traceability, capturing complex interrelationships, handling anisotropy, maintaining additional variables, and capturing processing information.
 
At the end of Phase I, robust materials information management has been developed to meet these challenges. It ensures that data is easily accessible, traceable, and available for use in further analysis, and that the results of this analysis can then be stored in the same system. The effectiveness has been validated through practical application by MDMC members. Phase II will draw on this experience to further advance the system, reducing risk and saving time in the development of composite structures and the products that use them.
 
“The main focus of the Material Data Management Consortium has always been to maximize productivity, while maintaining quality, traceability, and security of mission-critical materials data,“ explains Granta’s Dr. Will Marsden. “We invite any organization with an interest in managing or using composite data to join this collaboration.“
