Join speakers from Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, and NASA as they share how they have implemented effective workflows for the management and use of critical data on composites, alloys, and other materials. They will discuss the impact on materials engineering, design, simulation, and on making better materials decisions. Combining the right materials data with the right tools, such enterprises can reduce cost and turnaround time in solving materials-related problems.

Renae Rippere is a Mechanical Engineer at Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control division in Orlando, Florida. Renae has been working in Materials and Process Engineering since 2011. Prior to this role, she spent 3 years interning in LMMFC’s Mechanical Design and Liaison Engineering department. Renae has a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering, both from the University of Central Florida.
Dr. Steven M. Arnold is Chief of the Mechanics and Life Prediction Branch within the Structures and Materials Division at NASA Glenn Research Center with over 25 years of experience. In addition to Dr. Arnold management responsibility he conducts research on the development of advanced high temperature viscoelastoplastic deformation and damage constitutive models, micromechanics models and the associated multi-scale design and analysis computational tools required to make these models accessible to the engineering community. Dr. Arnold's research activities have resulted in over 330 technical publications, 94 of which are journal publications. He is also the author of two US Patents and co-founder and chairman of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC) and director of MACE, NASA Glenn’s Multiscale Analysis Center of Excellence.
Dr. Will Marsden is Granta's Product Director for Aerospace, Defense & Energy. His experience includes research at Rolls-Royce and DERA, and management of the composites group for a finite element software organization. He coordinates the work of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC).
Learning from the Material Data Management Consortium
The Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC) is an aerospace industry collaboration that has defined best practice approaches to managing materials information and guided development of software tools to support these approaches.
Join this Webinar to hear from MDMC members. They will discuss how they have implemented systems to capture, analyze, control, and maintain all of their materials information, enabling, for example, the creation of fully-traceable design allowable data. Such materials data is expensive, yet many organizations do not treat it as a valuable resource. A recent survey of engineering enterprises found that as much as 20% of materials tests are duplicates; 50% of data is used once, then discarded; and engineers spend an average one hour per week just looking for materials data.
See how these challenges are being overcome, with authoritative materials information being delivered into the hands of engineers and product design teams, quickly and traceably, and within their routine workflows. You will also see how combining a controlled source of corporate materials data with the right tools can help in other areas—enabling more accurate and efficient design, providing traceable workflows for simulation and multi-scale modeling in ICME, and supporting decisions on materials selection and substitution.
