This new tool for introducing eco design concepts was released last year and has since been widely applied. The new version includes many enhancements based on user feedback, improving its practicality and value:
'End of life' is now considered in the audit, giving a more complete picture of the product lifecycle
New data for electronic subassemblies makes it much easier to perform audits for products containing electronics
A series of minor changes enhance usability - for example, making it simple to localize the CO2 footprint calculations based on the electricity mix of different countries
Durability information has been significantly enhanced at level 2 of the EduPack Materials and Processes Database (the level designed for intermediate-level students). Information is now provided on performance in 55 different environments.
This helps to introduce students to durability and corrosion - issues of special importance in product design, manufacturing, civil, chemical, marine, and mechanical engineering, and in materials science.
New guidance charts during selection
A new software feature improves the interactivity of the materials selection process. When setting constraints on a materials property during selection you can now view a 'guidance chart' that provides a quick visual indication of the range of possible values. This is particularly valuable to new students, helping them to gain confidence and to get a better feel for materials property space.
Create custom subsets
You can quickly and easily specify a custom subset of materials from the database for use during a selection project. The subset can be defined and changed interactively during selection, greatly aiding the process of narrowing down material or processing options.
Subsets can also be saved and then re-loaded and applied to a project. This makes it simple to quickly create charts displaying only the materials covered in your course, and to set up specific student exercises or lecture demonstrations.
Presentation enhancements on materials charts include the ability to customize the color of materials or groups of materials and to interactively click and on a 'family envelope' to create and edit a label for that family.
These features help to make the EduPack property charts even more informative. These charts can be cut-and-pasted directly to reports and presentations. The new capabilities help teachers to identify and present key features of materials space.
The CES EduPack information resources include references to leading materials texts. At the end of each Science Note is a 'Further Reading' section providing references relating to the property being discussed. References to Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers by Shackelford have now been included.
A new book by Professor Mike Ashby, Materials and the Environment: Eco-Informed Material Choice, is a response to increasing eco-concerns. It introduces methods for thinking about and designing with materials when one of the objectives is to minimize environmental impact. The text includes exercises using CES EduPack and works alongside EduPack to create a powerful integrated teaching resource for sustainable engineering.
Updated PowerPoint lecture
Updated versions of 15 PowerPoint lectures, authored by Professor Mike Ashby are available for download from the CES EduPack Teaching Resources site. These include a new lecture on Bio Engineering, building on last year's release of the Bio Materials database. Use these slide sets, or parts of them, to enhance or support your own lectures.
New and updated level 3 data
The advanced property data at level 3 of the Materials and Process Database has been updated and extended in areas including:
Enhanced data on energy and CO2 footprint
New data on transparent plastics and elastomers
In addition, new versions of a number of the databases available with specialist EduPack Editions have been released. These include CAMPUS and MMPDS-03.
Other new features include:
The Architecture & the Built Environment Edition has been enhanced with additional eco properties and access to the Eco Audit Tool
Design notes have now been added to all level 3 attributes to help project students and reduce common selection mistakes
The Eco Design Edition now includes materials from the Architecture Edition offering increased consistency for those using EduPack as a campus-wide resource, particularly in faculties focused on architecture and the built environment
