GiD present in the ECCM-ECFD 2018

cabecera

From 11th to 15th June the 6th European Conference on Computational Mechanics and the 7th European Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics will take place in Glasgow, Scotland.

The congresses will take place coinciding with 25th anniversary of ECCOMAS (European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences an Engineering),

All the attendees will find the new GiD brochure inside the congress bags, presenting the new GiD version 14.

If you are attending the congress and you have any question regarding new GiD v14 just let us know in our social media!

For further information please visit www.eccm-ecfd2018.org.

 

9th GiD convention registration deadline extended to 1st May

The registration deadline for the 9th GiD convention has been extended to 1st May.

The objective of convention is to bring together users and developers of GiD pre/post processing system in order to exchange ideas and experiences on the generation of data for computer simulation and the graphical visualization of numerical results.

Join us during 3 days of workshops and courses about simulation. You also will have the opportunity to discover GiD v14, that will be launched that day.

Remember that thee courses attendees will receive an exclusive 1 year GiD v14 professional licence.

Don’t miss the opportunity and check all the information regarding the event here.

See you in Barcelona next June!

Check¬†what’s new¬†in this version:

Preprocess:

  • Geometry->Edit->Hole surface, now allow also planar surfaces, multiple holes, and define holes with lines or other surfaces
  • Mesh->Edit mesh->Move nodes z raster (to set the z of the mesh from a raster file)
  • Nodes/Elements to grid surfaces: allow select the desired entities.

  • Rearranged meshing preferences
  • Background image read from file stored in memory to allow save/re-read it with the model

Postprocess:

  • Native support of HDF5 postprocess format.
  • Correct bug merging multiple meshes
  • Automatic animations: follow a node

Customization:

  • Vtk Tcl package updated from 5.8.0 to 8.0.1

Buy SpreadDEM in the GiD shop

SpreadDEMNow you can purchase your SpreadDEM licences throught the GiD shop.

SpreadDEM is developed for MS Windows and can be purchased as a local or USB licence. The local version is a licence for a single PC/Laptop while the USB is a portable licence associated to a specific memory stick.

SpreadDEM is the first industrial numerical tool to perform virtual experiments of centrifugal fertilizer spreaders oriented to designers and producers of agricultural machinery.

Uses GiD as pre and post processor and takes advantage of the GiD customization tools to adapt the GUI appearance to SpreadDEM needs.

Based on DEMPack technology, a Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation, the trajectory of every single fertilizer particle is evaluated from the hopper to their contact with the ground.

Perform virtual experiments of centrifugal spreaders with SpreadDEM

LogoNew

SpreadDEM is the first industrial numerical tool to perform virtual experiments of centrifugal fertilizer spreaders oriented to designers and producers of agricultural machinery. Is based on GiD and DEMPack.

Obtain spread patterns, transversal distributions of fertiliser and the coefficient of variation easily by importing your spreader geometry.

Improve your design by analysing the detailed flow of particles from the hopper onto the disc and from there to the ground, tracking individual trajectories, velocities and impact points.

SpreadDEM has been developed in CIMNE by the DEMPack team.

Easy to use

SpreadDEM provides a complete and practical solution to optimize the design of the spreading machinery becoming an alternative to trial-and-error experimental testing. Thanks to its easy-to-use interface, users are able to simulate in a few intuitive steps and with minimal training the most significant results for the fertilizer spreading.

Events

Past November, SpreadDEM team attended the¬†Agritechnica 2017, the world’s No. 1 trade fair for agricultural machinery, presenting¬†SpreadDEM to the leading manufacturers of agricultural machinery.

In February 2018 SpreadDEM team will attend FIMA2018, the 40 International Fair of Agricultural Machinery, that will take place on 20-24 February in Zaragoza, Spain.

9th GiD convention

gidconvention2018

The 9th GiD convention on Advances and Applications of GiD will be held from 6th to 8th June 2018 in Barcelona.

The objective of this event is to bring together users and developers of GiD pre/post processing system in order to exchange ideas and experiences on the generation of data for computer simulation and the graphic visualization of numerical results.

Furthermore, the 14th version of GiD will be released in the frame of the GiD Convention, and its new features will be presented.

One day will be devoted to workshop where advanced topics related with pre, post processing and customization will be discussed and, in the following two days, courses on GiD and calculation modules connected to it will take place.

The courses attendees will receive an exclusive 1 year GiD v14 professional licence for free.

New GiD developer version 13.1.9d

A new developer version have been released. GiD13.1.9d is ready to download from our webpage.

Check¬†what’s new in this version:

Preprocess:

  • Fixed bug in unstructured quadrilateral mesher that made GiD crashes in some cases where the surface to mesh had holes.
  • Added some check in octree volume mesher when there are forced points inside volumes, to avoid pathological situations that may lead the program to crash. These pathological situations happens when a forced point suposed to be inside a volume is actually onto some of its contour surfaces.

Customization:

  • New plugin ‘gid_slippy’ and gid_map package to import topography from tile map servers
  • New tcl GiD_Project subcommand¬†GiD_Project view ?clip_planes_x |clip_planes_y| clip_planes_z| clip_planes_margin| rotation_vector| rotation_factor |rotation_matriz| rotation_center| perspective_distance| perspective_ortho_near| perspective_ortho_far| perspective_factor| perspective_view| view_mode| render_mode| ligth_vector?
  • New tcl GiD_OpenGL draw subcommands to allow handle textures: -gentextures -deletetextures -bindtexture
  • togl widget renamed to gid_togl (to avoid name conflict with tcl3d package) and added drawing callbacks to be defined in Tcl instead of C (-createcommand, -displaycommand, -reshapecommand, -destroycommand, -overlaydisplaycommand, -timercommand)
  • GiD_Info conditions -localaxes: new¬†-array¬†option to efficiently return as arrays the ids and values of local axes
  • New¬†GiD_Info library names|version|format_version <library_name>
  • GiD_ModifyData localaxis <condition_name> ?geometry|mesh? <entity_ids…> <entiy_euler_angles…>

  • Predefined procedure to be used to select a group in a question as¬†TKWIDGET: GidUtils::TkwidgetGetGroupname
  • gid_cross_platform::run_as_administrator, return process exit value
  • Fixed bug changing field values with units of a just renamed material
  • Avoid crash of buffer overflow with too long questions in some special case
