Ansys Granta Materials Data Categories

All Granta software includes a set of Core Materials Data and their properties. This can be supplemented with a wide spectrum of Advanced Materials Data for different industries and materials types. Access design, supplier, or test data or standards and specifications – helping to inform critical decisions across design, materials selection and more.


  • MaterialUniverse

    Access Granta’s unique generic database of engineering, economic and eco property profiles for thousands of materials. MaterialUniverseTM allows for a like-to-like comparison across material and processing possibilities. Additional sustainability data from ecoinvent and more additive manufacturing data with Senvol™ is included.

  • JAHM Curve Data

    Specialist Temperature-dependent property data for thousands of datasheets. Ideal as input data for simulation. Included as part of our Granta Core Data.

  • Metals

    Our Advanced Metals Data includes a combination of Design, Test and Standards and Specifications data.

    • Global Metals Specifications incorporates materials data from ASM International, the German Steel Institute, UK Steel and WMI.
    • Design data for Boiler and pressure vessel data from ASME.
    • Creep and fatigue data from Japan’s NIMs – exclusively for Granta MI Enterprise.

    Standards and specifications data on powder metallurgy and test data for sheet steels is also available.

  • Polymers

    This set of supplier grade data from well-respected spec sheets, gives you access to hundreds of thousands of resins and tens of thousands of polymer additives. This data enables designers to compare the properties and processing of plastics and elastomers, in addition to selecting the appropriate additives.

    Now with over 105,000 polymers including simulation ready data for true stress and creep model parameters. A new subset called Nonlinear simulation enables users to easily find records with simulation-ready attributes.

  • Composites

    With our composite data, users gain access to data from manufacturers and leading research projects including Mil-Handbook-17 and Firehole Composites for standards and specifications. Traceable composite data from the NCAMP and AGATE projects to support qualification, equivalency, and design with the Composite QED, is only available for our Granta MI Enterprise product.

  • Additive Manufacturing

    Leverage comprehensive supplier grade data on additive manufacturing machines and compatible materials from Senvol DatabaseTM.
