This course will cover:
- The definition of performance indices.
- How to derive performance indices using design requirements.
- How to apply performance indices during materials selection using Ansys Granta EduPack.
- An example case study of materials selection with performance indices for the deck of a longboard.
Please use this handout to follow along with the course content. References, such as the “Materials Selection in Mechanical Design” textbook, and relevant links can be found in the Relevant Links segment of the course.
If you are not familiar with the Ashby Selection Methodology, it is recommended to take the Basic Systematic Materials Selection before taking this course to avoid unnecessary confusion.
