What is CES?

The Cambridge Engineering Selector (CES) is a Windows based PC toolkit for the evaluation of information for engineering design, developed by Granta Design Ltd., in conjunction with Cambridge University Engineering Department.

How can it help us?

We can use CES to search for materials that fulfill our design or application requirements. In other words, we can choose a material from the CES database to use in making a component or part in your design. CES is a computer-aid database-driven tool for Material Selection in engineering design.

What is the purpose of this tutorial?

The purpose of this tutorial is to show how to use the CES software to select a material best suited for a specific application or project. It should also familiarize you with the software and included database for continued materials research and selection.
