Next week will take place the first international conference on the Material Point Method for “Modelling Large Deformation and Soil–Water–Structure Interaction” in Delft, Netherlands.
This conference is organized by Anura 3D MPM Research Community.
The aim of the conference is to provide an international forum for presenting and discussing the latest developments in both the fundamental basis and the applicability of state-of-the-art computational methods that can be effectively used for solving a variety of large deformation problems in geotechnical and hydraulic engineering. Special focus is on the numerical modelling of interaction between soils, water and structures where the interface and transition between solid and fluid behaviour plays an essential role.
The last day will take place a training course that is already fully booked but you can still register for the conference during this week in http://mpm2017.eu/registration.
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.
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.
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.
For further information please visit wccm2016.org
Today 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.
Find more information about the workshop here.
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!
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 is happy to annouce that we have expanded our social media presence with the launch of official accounts on Twitter and LinkedIn.
Connect with other GiD users, get the latest info, discuss the most recent updates or simply spread the word about GiD. Comments and discussions are welcomed!
Remember that you can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to see examples of simulations using GiD.
CIMNE took part in the ‘Saló de l’Ensenyament’ (The Education Fair), held in Barcelona from 9th to 13th of March, 2016, at the Palau 2 of the Recinte Montjuïc. The international research center participated in the workshops and activities carried out at the space of Centres Cerca de Catalunya (CERCA) in the ‘EspaiCiència!’ (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 –16h– and March 11th –11h–) what exactly a simulation is, how it is present in our everyday life and its paper to predict in the science field.
