Materials Selection in research and teaching: an aerospace additive manufacturing example

December 3, 2019 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Making the right materials and process choices for aerospace applications is challenging, particularly with the expanding range of possibilities offered by new additive manufacturing technologies.  In this webinar, we’ll demonstrate software tools and data resources that can help, focusing on the needs of university researchers and teachers.

Who should attend?

  • University teachers/professors
  • Researchers and engineers
  • This webinar is not meant for students.

What you will learn:

  • Learn from a real case study: an Invar alloy for aerospace applications: as-cast vs additively-manufactured
  • See the latest GRANTA Selector software in action, along with the Senvol Database™ for additive manufacturing materials

Find out how to compare materials, establish performance indices for aerospace applications, and select the right process


Date: December 3, 2019
Time: 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm


Mauricio Dwek works with academics and educators in French universities and lycees, as well as universities in Belgium, Brazil, the Middle East and Africa.  He holds a PhD in industrial engineering from the Grenoble Institute of Technology, where we worked on the eco-design team on the subject of critical materials, recycling networks, and the circular economy. He also has an MSc in Production Engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, during which he did research on the subject of engineering education and assisted in interdisciplinary projects for social development. His technical background is in chemistry and materials sciences, with first degrees completed in engineering at the ENSC in Lille, France and in materials engineering at the Polytechnic School of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

David Mercier is part of the Education Division at ANSYS Granta supporting educational and research institutions in France and Belgium as Development Manager.  He holds an MSc and PhD in material science and engineering from the University of Grenoble, and his technical background is related to microelectronics and metallurgy. David was involved in several successful postdoctoral research projects in Germany and Belgium during 6 years, particularly in the field of multiscale modeling and characterization of mechanical properties of materials using nanoindentation techniques.
