Granta Design Launch New Module Providing Access to Creep and Fatigue Data

Granta Design has announced the launch of a new data module providing searchable access to metals property data from Japan's National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), experts on the long-term behavior of metallic materials.

The creep and fatigue characterization data generated by NIMS is important for design, maintenance, and overhaul of, for example, power stations and processing plants.

This world-leading data-set results from up to 40 years of continuous testing of metals including steels (e.g., carbon steels, low alloy steels, high chromium steels, and austenitic stainless steels) as well as a wide range of alloys (e.g., Iron-based, Nickel-based, and Cobalt-based alloys). It includes the raw numerical data from detailed creep rupture measurements and fatigue data, which is crucial for materials engineers considering safety and long-term reliability.

The launch of the new data module means that, for the first time, users are able to access and use the underlying raw numerical data as opposed to simply viewing published graphs and figures. The data is now available through the leading materials information management system, GRANTA MI, which gives easy web browser-based access and allows users to search, plot, and export data for use in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). Installing GRANTA MI on a corporate network can also provide fast, integrated, enterprise-wide access to in-house and other reference data, complementing the NIMS dataset.

Dr. Toshio Ogata, Station Director of the Materials Information Station at NIMS, said, "We are delighted that the valuable creep and fatigue data, resulting from many years of research at NIMS, is now more widely accessible. This will help engineers to create safe, secure, and sustainable products and structures."

"We were very pleased to be able to work with NIMS to provide full access to the raw numerical data needed in energy and processing plant applications" commented Granta's Chief Operating Officer, Dr Patrick Coulter. "The availability of this valuable creep and fatigue data within GRANTA MI adds to our range of world-class property data on metals, alloys, and other materials."
