Room C160B, Columbus Convention Center
Session Description

Free ticketed event
A time-limited license will be distributed before the workshop for attendees’ own PC.

In this workshop you will:
• Gain practical knowledge and skills regarding material properties and informed material selection
• Share insights and tips on how to teach design and product development
• Learn about how the software can be used to facilitate accreditation for engineering education
• See case studies, exercises, lecture units, and other teaching resources available for educators

Topical Outline:
• Overview of data structure and content
• Visualization tools for decision making
• Selection methodology
• Overview of specialized tools and CES Selector: eco-audit and synthesizer tools

Please bring your own PC so that you can participate in the hands-on sessions.

  1. Dr. Claes Fredriksson

He has run materials selection short courses at universities (Georgia Tech, Northwestern University, Boston University, UC Irvine) and conferences (TMS, ASEE). Before joining Granta, he has collaborated with the French Space Agency on software development for bio-inspired space trajectory optimization, and on computational techniques for multi-objective optimization as part of his PhD at the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde (UK). He is author of several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters for AIAA and IEEE on these subjects. He also has R&D industrial experience in spacecraft propulsion systems. Luca also holds a Master’s Degree (first class) in Space Engineering and a Bachelor’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Pisa (Italy).

  3. Mrs. Hannah Melia

    Granta Design, Ltd.

    Hannah Melia leads the Teaching Resources Team at Granta Design and has responsibility for the development of CES EduPack and associated teaching resources. She has a degree in Materials Science and Metallurgy and a Post Graduate Certificate in Design, Manufacturing and Management from the University of Cambridge. She has worked in the United States and Germany on medical device design and technology transfer. Over the last eight years she has interacted with academics that use CES EduPack around the world.
