In this presentation, speakers from Boeing, Honeywell Aerospace, and NASA join Granta Design to discuss the effective management and use of critical materials data. All participants are members of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC), an aerospace industry collaboration that guides the development of new technologies and strategies for materials data management. These include software that is now available to any aerospace organization. Attendees of the presentation will discover how a systematic approach to materials information enables the creation of fully-traceable design-allowable data. They will also learn how to dramatically reduce lost data and duplicated tests, improve compliance with national and international regulations (for example, ITAR and restricted substances), and avoid risk due to out-dated or inconsistent information.
- Learn how leading aerospace organizations are managing and using materials information
- Discover how your company can benefit from the technology and approaches developed by the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC)
- Understand the wider implications of effective materials management - notably design, purchasing, and regulatory issues
- Discover commercial, off-the-shelf software designed for the materials engineering function
An Engineering Fellow at Honeywell Aerospace, Dr. Michael Gorelik has over 20 years of experience in fracture mechanics, fatigue, probabilistic methods, and material data management. He currently serves as project manager for Granta deployment at Honeywell. The recipient of numerous technology awards and the author of many published papers and technical articles, Gorelik is a chairman of the SAE G-11 Aerospace Standards Division and Honeywell representative on MDMC (Material Data Management Consortium). He holds a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics/Materials Engineering from the University of Illinois, and an MBA degree from the W.P. Carrey School of Business (ASU).
Steven M. Arnold is Chief of the Mechanics and Life Prediction Branch within the Structures and Materials Division at NASA Glenn Research Center. His investigations of structural material behavior for advanced aircraft propulsion systems has resulted in numerous computational tools, including the award-winning micromechanics analysis code MAC/GMC. Co-founder and chair of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC), Arnold is also the director of MACE, NASA Glenn's Multiscale Analysis Center of Excellence.
As manager of Boeing's Computational Methods Group, E. Joe Sharp heads the research and technology team responsible for computational material simulation. Sharp received his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Washington, and went on to work with Rocketdyne as a structures analyst on the Space Shuttle Main Engine project. At Boeing, he has been development team leader for the Boeing Common Structures Workstation project. Sharp also serves as the engineering system owner for the Boeing Engineering Materials Data System (EMDS).
Will Marsden is Product Director of Aerospace, Defense, and Energy at Granta Design. His job responsibilities include coordinating Granta's involvement with the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC). A former research engineer at Rolls-Royce and DERA, the research agency for the UK Ministry of Defense, Marsden earned a BSc in Materials Engineering and a PhD in composites fracture mechanics from the University of Surrey.
