Optimization of Material Properties Workflow and Materials Selection in CAE

As the leading provider of materials reference data Key to Metals AG will present the key aspects of how the Total Materia database can support and improve the accuracy of simulation results whilst reducing cost, optimizing material usage and eliminating a large amount risk that can be attributed to poor decisions around materials, properties and their selection. One of the key Industry 4.0 design principles is the ability of machines, devices, sensors, and people to connect and communicate with each other via the Internet of Things and the transfer and usage of data in integrated engineering systems is a key part of these technological advancements.

  • Finding comprehensive information for a known material from mechanical and physical properties to stress-strain and fatigue data
  • Searching for a suitable list of candidate materials according to user defined parameters from a “blank canvas”
  • Material selection tools to drive smarter decisions, from conceptual to detailed charting of multiple materials
  • Direct comparison opportunities using material side by side comparison as well as individual property and diagram visualization possibilities
