Granta Design and Witchita State University’s National Center for Advanced Materials Performance (NCAMP) have partnered to make the center’s resource library available to users of GRANTA MI.
This new agreement, according to the company, will deliver more in-depth data to user organizations, as well as secure access to future updates and ensure fast delivery of data updates. The composite specification and design values developed using the NCAMP process are accepted by the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency.
Instead of needing to qualifying an entire material system, aircraft manufacturers can pull a system from the NCAMP database, prove equivalency and gain certification quicker than a typical qualification approach. The data can be delivered within the platform, where is is fully integrated with material property reference data on composites, metals and plastics from a variety of sources.
“We’re pleased to be working with Granta to provide access to the NCAMP data within the GRANTA MI system, making it even easier to apply this valuable data and use it alongside proprietary results,” said John Tomblin, director, NCAMP.
