In the MAE CAD Lab, the ANSYS Material Library can be accessed as follows:

Preprocessor > Material Props > Material Library > Import Library  (Select units - BFT means British Ft. system, etc) -> OK

You should be taken to the directory I:\matlib\*.* (Select the material you want by name) -> OK Then close the window which shows you the materials properties.

Alternatively you can enter material properties in the grey ANSYS command line just after the prompt Pick a menu item or enter ANSYS Command below.

For example you would enter mp, EX, 1, 3.e7 and press return
