EDA offers many capabilities for displaying and comparing material properties from JMatPro.
A flexible tree structure is only one entry point to locate materials. Multiple selection of materials shows all data of the marked materials in parallel – Curves are automatically superimposed. In addition, configurable summary tables are available that work with their filter functions like common spreadsheets. Of course, the tables can also be graphically evaluated, e.g. through X-Y plots or histograms.
How can EDA help to resolve target conflicts in material selection systematically?
When choosing materials, there are often conflicting goals: For example, high strength, excellent processing properties and a low price are often required at the same time. This not only applies when deciding on the use of different materials - even a single material designation offers a great deal of optimization potential within the scope of the often broad range of specifications.
EDA facilitates and supports the calculation of material variants with JMatPro. In our own material innovation projects we usually calculate several thousand material modifications. This saves much time and efforts in practical tests and experiments.
EDA offers a built-in tool to automatically generate JMatPro batch files which represent a full factorial record of chemical compositions. JMatPro is then used to generate data which are imported into EDA.
