Learning Engineering Materials – Material Selection Methodology in Engineering Design

This course covers the fundamentals of engineering materials and their selection for engineering design. The importance of materials properties knowledge for design will be highlighted, then students will learn the Ashby Material Selection Methodology that is adopted by industrials as the golden standards and how to apply it in a real industrial case study through live demonstrations within GRANTA EduPack 2020.

GRANTA Academic Course Highlights (Duration: 21st OCTOBER):

  • General Course Introduction and Overview of GRANTA EduPack 2020
  • Brief History of Materials and the Evolution of Materials in Engineering
  • Design Process and Materials Selection Methodology in Engineering Design
  • Break
  • Live Demo: Real Industrial Case Study on Material Selection in Engineering Design.
  • Q&A and Discussions

This course focuses to impart basic knowledge in the field of Electromagnetic Simulation, covering concepts in both Low-Frequency and High frequency Electromagnetics. Students will learn how to design Motors and Antennas using the Ansys applications (Motor-CAD, Maxwell, HFSS), with the emphasis on the complete design workflow (pre-processing, solver settings and post-processing). This course is suitable for undergraduate students from Electrical and Electronics Engineering department.

Electromagnetics Course Highlights (Duration: 28th – 30th JULY):

  • Introduction to Low-Frequency and High Frequency Electromagnetics
  • Ansys Electronics Desktop Overview
  • Motor design workflow using Ansys Motor-CAD/Maxwell
  • Design and Simulation of 5G smart antenna system using Ansys HFSS
  • Includes Demonstrations, Assignments and Q &A
Summer School Electromagnetics Course

This course provides a brief introduction of what FEM is, covering concepts such as geometry discretization, elements, and degrees of freedom. It further explores the applications of FEM in various industries such as Aerospace & Defence, Healthcare, Environmental Engineering and product tests. The course also exposes students to the Ansys workbench user interface. Students will learn how to use ANSYS to perform Structural Analysis and Fluid Flow Analysis

Foundation Course Highlights:

  • Introduction to FEM
  • Applications of FEM
  • Ansys Workbench GUI
  • Structural Analysis using ANSYS
  • Fluid Flow Analysis using ANSYS
  • Includes Demonstrations, Assignments and Q&A

This course teaches students further analysis tools with ANSYS. Students can learn how to perform Crash Analysis, Drop Test Analysis and Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) Analysis. This course is suitable for students who are already familiar with the basics of ANSYS covered in the foundation course.

Advanced Course Highlights:

  • Crash Analysis using ANSYS
  • Drop Test Analysis using ANSYS
  • Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) Analysis using ANSYS
  • Includes Demonstrations, Assignments and Q&A

“Simulation is more than a software.”

The summer school aims to provide students with fundamental knowledge of engineering simulations, and spark students’ interests in solving the real engineering problems using simulation tools.
