Material Selection is very important in modern engineering design process due to great diversity in the properties of modern materials. Today thousands of materials are available for engineers to select the best required material among these, for their design. One may use online material data base like MatWeb or Granta’s Design CES selector software for material selection. In this study research is conducted for the selection of materials for radiant plaques of gas heaters by using the Granta’s Design CES Edupak software. Radiant (Infrared) gas heaters are generally used for the purpose of cooking food and warming rooms, halls etc. to achieve human comfort. The plaques used in these heaters are usually made of ceramics like glasses, cordierite, alumina etc. In this work candidates of materials for these plaques are selected using the Granta’s Design CES Edupak software.
