Ansys Materials

Intelligent, consistent and digitized material handling – this is what Ansys Materials with the Ansys Granta products stand for. They show their value in simulation and as an enterprise solution far beyond.


Granta Software has been ensuring that companies use reliable material information, and have the right tools to apply it, for over 20 years. Designers who incorporate this knowledge right from the start develop better products faster. In addition, the entire company benefits from consistent and traceable material information, enabling the right decisions to be made early on.

Ansys Materials overview

Make A Leap in Material-Led Eco-design

2022 R2 sees Ansys Granta’s products build on the data, tool, and integration offering to help engineers factor in material sustainability earlier in the design process – helping reduce product development time and make more sustainable material choices.

Users of Ansys Mechanical can use the new Ansys Material Calibration app available in Granta MI™ to generate accurate material models from experimental data, to help drive simulation accuracy with materials across the simulation team.

With material now exportable from any Ansys Granta product to any Ansys flagship solver and a supercharged version of Granta MI Pro, we’re making it easier to take the first step to achieving Material Intelligence.
