The Cambridge Engineering Selector (CES) is a software package that has been produced to help answer these questions. Developed over a number of years by Mike Ashby and, the Selector is now being marketed by their company, Granta Design. The selector makes use of an extensive database of information, and can also be linked to a company's own database for specific applications. In addition web links are provided to search other relevant sites.
'I am delighted that the Cambridge Engineering Selector is already being used in so many ways, from teaching in schools to helping designers in the top levels of industry' says David Cebon. 'We have even run student projects to develop software packages for selecting plants for your garden and batteries for a variety of products from cameras to Game Boys.' Further information on the Cambridge Engineering Selector and a free demonstration disc are available from David Cebon.
A unique PC-based software product supporting systematic selection of materials for engineering applications. CES Selector, based on the Cambridge Engineering Selector (CES) approach developed by Professor Mike Ashby at Cambridge University, is a unique tool for the rational selection of engineering materials – metals, ceramics, polymers, composites – and of manufacturing processes – shaping, finishing, joining, and surface treatment. The software is easy to install and use on your PC. It combines a database of materials and process properties (choose the Edition to fit your needs) with software tools to:. Browse and search the information in the materials property database. Create highly visual, interactive materials property charts that enable you to inspect and compare materials, and.
Apply this information using a systematic materials selection method to identify and rank the best materials for a particular engineering application.
