Obtaining, entering, and managing material property data effectively can speed-up the analysis process and improve work flow.  The Engineering Data Manager is the ANSYS Workbench tool used for this purpose.  This e-Learning session is intended for those who want to learn to use the Engineering Data Manager to efficiently enter, store, view, retrieve, and organize material property data.

CAE Associates’ Senior Engineering Manager Steven Hale discusses procedures for performing the following tasks with the Engineering Data Manager:

  • Define material properties
  • Organize material properties
  • Store material properties in a material property library which can be used in other projects
  • Obtain material property data from existing material libraries
  • Assign different material properties to different parts of a model
  • Navigate the toolbox and data windows
