Iber training courses

Iber is a two-dimensional mathematical model for simulating flows in rivers and estuaries.

Aula Iber provides training courses in numerical modeling in River Hydraulics using the Iber model. The courses provided include theoretical and practical sessions.

Also, since october 2013, aula Iber offers an online training program. The online courses are addressed to university graduates and professionals from hydraulic engineering consultancies.

Besides the online training program, aula Iber organizes regularly classrooms courses around the world. The latest course took place in Temuco, Chile, from 5th to 8th July.

GiD team visits Mexico

During August, Javier Gárate from GiD team will visit several universities and research centers in Mexico.

The GiD team has the purpose to get closer to the GiD users community. For this reason is dedicating resources to visit universities and research centers.

The aim of this travel is to get in touch with the GiD users comunity in Mexico, giving them support in the creation of new problemtypes in GiD using the new CustomLib.

Javier will also take the opportunity to present the GiD v13 news and teach GiD courses to the researchers.

The trip includes visits to the Universidad de Guanajuato, CIMAT, also located in Guanajuato, and the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, in Morelia.

One year free licence for the attendees of WCCM 2016

From 24th to 29th July the World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM) will take place in Seoul, Korea.

We are proud to annouce that all the attendees will receive a one year free licence of GiD version 13.
The attendees will find a GiD brochure inside the congress bags with all the information in order to get it.

8th Workshop of CODE_BRIGHT

Code_brightToday 19th May is taking place a workshop of GiD and a coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical module: CODE_BRIGHT.

CODE_BRIGHT is a Finite Element Method (FEM) program capable of performing coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) analysis in geological media. It has been developed at the Department of Geotechnical Engineering and Geo-Sciences of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).
CODE_BRIGHT uses GiD as a pre and post processor.

Import Star Wars 3D models in GiD

Did you know that GiD can import .obj files?
From preprocessing just select in top menu¬†Files->Import->OBJ Wavefront mesh…
With this option it is possible to read mesh files with obj format (Wavefront Technologies).

A Star Wars fan? Video CoPilot are giving away a collection of 3D models about the epic franchise! You can download the pack from here.

Just try the .obj importation in GiD with this pack and import meshes of your favourite characters like R2-D2 or BB-8.

May GiD be with you!

GiD supports MPM research community


The Material Point Method (MPM) research community has organized a training course about Modelling and simulation of soil-water interaction for dredging applications using MPM.

The course will take place tomorrow May 3rd at the University of Cambridge, UK.

GiD is providing free licences to be used by the participants of the training course.

GiD team participated in the ‚ÄėSal√≥ de l‚ÄôEnsenyament‚Äô

CIMNE took part in the ‚ÄėSal√≥ de l‚ÄôEnsenyament‚Äô (The Education Fair), held in Barcelona from 9th to 13th of March, 2016, at the Palau 2 of the Recinte Montju√Įc. The international research center participated in the workshops and activities carried out at the space of Centres Cerca de Catalunya (CERCA) in the ‚ÄėEspaiCi√®ncia!‚Äô (Science Space).

During the five days of the exhibition, some centres members of the institution CERCA¬†explained¬†to the young visitors the motivations to become a scientist and why the research will be useful in the future. The GiD team¬†explained in two sessions (March 9th ‚Äď16h‚Äď and March 11th ‚Äď11h‚Äď) what exactly a¬†simulation is, how it is present in our everyday life and its paper to predict in the science field.
