Matereality® V.3.0 to Provide Individual and Corporate Material Database Hosting

Ithaca, NY April 9th, 2008:
On its fifth anniversary of formation, Matereality has expanded to a globally deployed platform hosting Public and Private material databases. With it’s new 3.0 Release, the Company now offers corporations a scaled approach to creating a Corporate Materials Data Center with built-in web tools for data loading, manipulation and downloading. Additionally, the new export interface improves connectivity with other supported software.

The design of Matereality has been further enhanced in 3.0.
One platform powers big and small databases with powerful data loading, access control, manipulation and download tools.
Because of the platform environment, corporate materials knowledge is completely liberated from software requirements on individual desktops. Design engineers, sales force and technical support groups can all access material data in a controlled manner from anywhere with standard web browsers.

Matereality exploits Web 2.0 concepts of peer-to-peer selective sharing. Invite collaborators and build a digital and secure data-sharing network. Then, use the new Share button to send dataset specific links to colleagues, directly from your database. The same network permits secure transmittal of high-value material properties between material suppliers and the end users. Mutilayered controls are provided to prevent unauthorized or inappropriate use of data.

The Matereality platform has in-built tools to permit the user to operate on digital data. The MIRO Search Engine introduced in earlier Matereality Version 2.0 is now combined with new tools to automate material model assembly for a variety of FEA and CAE codes such as Abaqus/CAE, ANSYS, Algor, Moldflow, Moldex3D and NX NASTRAN. A classic application for non-linear FEA takes raw stress-strain data residing in Matereality and provides a working interface for the user to convert it into an elastic-plastic model. “A process that previously took hours is now compressed to a few seconds”, says Hubert Lobo, Matereality CTO.

Matereality is now integrated within three CAE environments. New plug-ins for Abaqus/CAE and ANSYS Workbench are downloadable from the web-site; Moldex3D, also integrated, does not need a plug-in to work with Matereality.

For testing laboratories, the platform features a 100% web-based interface with automated ‘DataPipes’ for seamless uploads of experiment data from major test instruments in use today: Instron, TA/Rheometrics, Perkin Elmer, Goettfert.
