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. Coverage Content Level 1 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. 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. Level 2 Around 100 of the most widely used materials. Around 110 of the most commonly used processes. All the content of Level 1, supplemented by more extensive numerical data, design guidelines, ecological properties, and technical notes. Level 3 The core database contains more than 3,000 materials, including those in Levels 1 and 2. Spet editions covering aerospace, polymers, architecture, bio-materials, and eco- design are also available. Extensive numerical data for all materials, allowing the full power of the CES selection system to be deployed. 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, Shaping Processes, Joining Processes, and Surface Treatment. Each of the three levels can be interrogated by • BROWSING Exploring the database and retrieving records via a hierarchical index....
