This Getting Started Guide is part of a set of open access teaching resources created by Mike Ashby to help introduce students to materials, processes and rational selection. The Teaching Resources website aims to support teaching of materials-related courses in Design, Engineering and Science. Resources come in various formats and are aimed primarily at undergraduate education. Some like this are open access.

Getting started with CES EduPack

Getting started with CES EduPack
These exercises give an easy way to learn to use the CES EduPack software. The comprehensive CES Help file within the software gives more detailed guidance.

Thumbnail sketch of CES EduPack The CES EduPack software has three Levels of Database. Level 1 Coverage Around 70 of the most widely used materials drawn from the classes: metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, foams, and natural materials. Around 70 of the most widely used processes. Around 100 of the most widely used materials. Around 110 of the most commonly used processes. The core database contains more than 3,000 materials, including those in Levels 1 and 2. Specialist editions covering aerospace, polymers, architecture, bio-materials, and ecodesign are also available. Content A description, an image of the material in a familiar product, typical applications, and limited data for mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties, using rankings where appropriate. All the content of Level 1, supplemented by more extensive numerical data, design guidelines, ecological properties, and technical notes. Extensive numerical data for all materials, allowing the full power of the CES selection system to be deployed.

Level 2

Level 3

When the software opens you are asked to choose a Level. Chose Level 1 to start with.

At each Level there are a number of Data Tables.
The most important are: Materials and Processes.

Each of the three levels can be interrogated by
   BROWSING SEARCHING SELECTION Exploring the database and retrieving records via a hierarchical index. Finding information via a full-text search of records. Use of powerful selection engine to find records that meet an array of design criteria.

CES EduPack does far more than this. But this is enough to get started.
