GiD will participate in the International Seminar on Numerical Methods and Computational Tools 2021

The Seminar-workshop on computational tools and numerical methods for engineering problems, will take place next Saturday, April 24th.

The seminar will be held in online format from 8:00 am (GMT -5).

Enrique Escolano, Research Engineer at CIMNE and GiD developer will participate in this seminar with a GiD presentation.

This seminar is aimed at the general public who want to learn to use the computer software used in the development of projects in Computational Engineering or Scientific Computing. Not from the theoretical point of view of numerical methods, but from the use of computer packages offered in the market.

The session will be in Spanish.

Seminario CIAID

This event takes place within the framework of the International Seminar on Numerical Methods and Computational Tools 2021, organized by the Centro de Ingeniería Avanzada I+D (CIAID), located in Bogotá, Colombia.

After a successful opening session, we invite you to attend the second session of this free event and to disseminate it to the interested community.

CIAID is an engineering research and development (R&D) center made up of expert professionals in the fields of computational engineering, computer science, industrial automation, energy efficiency and project management.

Their objective is to apply scientific and technological knowledge in various economic, governmental and civil sectors, leaving its mark by complementing the organizational culture with the themes of innovation and technological development.


This session will have the participation of the following speakers.

The GiD presentation will start at 8:30h (GMT -5).


How to participate

The event is free of charge but previous registration is recommended.

Please pre-register using the following form: //

Anura3D Online Workshop 2021


The Anura3D Online Workshop 2021 will take place on Friday April 30th, 2021.

The workshop will be held in online format from 15h to 18h CEST.

Recent developments and applications of the Material Point Method for soil-water-structure interaction will be presented.

Moreover, the open-source version of Anura3D v2021 will be launched and there will be a tutorial session showing how to download, compile and run a simulation with the software.

How to participate

There is no charge to attend but the registration is mandatory through the following link:

You will receive an email with the link of the meeting the day before the event.

Find the detailed agenda and more information in the Anura3D website.

New version 2.6 of PassServer available

The new PasServer version 2.6 has been released.

PasServer is a license server for GiD.

The license server is the machine on the network that all of the other GiD client machines ‘ask’ if there is a license available for use. The license server machine then checks out a license and keeps track of it.

Is available for Linux and Windows systems and can be donwloaded for free from GiD Tools section.

What’s new?

This new version fixes some known errors from past versions and include a very interesting improvement for the users.

All GiD instancies running in the same machine will be counted only once by PasServer.

Find more information about PasServer in the official documentation.

GiD will participate in the first international symposium of CIMNE Joint Labs (Aulas CIMNE)


The first international symposium of CIMNE Joint Labs (Aulas CIMNE) will take place from 12h to 14h May from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (UTC + 2) and it will be an online event.

This symposium takes the witness from the CIMNE Joint Labs meetings and the local GiD workshops held in Mexico. The objective is to present and disseminate the activities and research carried out by the CIMNE Joint Labs around the world and to strengthen ties of collaboration.

The scientific program includes a special session held by the invited classrooms and a series of presentations by the participants. All interventions will last 25 minutes, plus 5 minutes for answer the questions.

The presentations will focus mainly on the activities carried out in the framework of the CIMNE Joint Labs, and may be topics on developments, projects and research.

GiD will participate in the symposium presenting the news and advances on the latest GiD version and sharing the experiences with the participants.

The event is free of charge but previous registration is mandatory.

GiD will help to optimize the design of chassis parts in Fatigue4Light

GiD will take part in the European Project Fatigue4Light: Fatigue modelling and fast testing methodologies to optimise part design and to boost lightweight materials deployment in chassis parts.

The project, started in February 2021, will work for four years on the development of new tests and new computer simulation methodologies to better estimate the fatigue life of chassis components and to select the optimal materials for lighter vehicle chassis. It will work on advanced high-strength steels, special stainless steels for automotive, high-strength aluminum alloys and hybrid metal-polymer materials.

Fatigue4Light is one of the first projects tackling this kind of problems.



Goals based in eco-design and circular economy

The goal is to reduce vehicle chassis weight compared to the current solutions, between 24 and 30 per cent for the most innovative solutions, reaching up to 40 per cent for some current applications.

The project’s results will optimise the selection of new materials and reduce the implementation time between material development and the design of a new chassis part.

Electric vehicle manufacturing in Europe is expected to grow from 1 million in 2019 to over 5 million in 2025, with rapid and sustained growth through 2030. The project takes into account the principles of the circular economy and eco-design, in order to develop light and high-durability chassis, which is vital to increase the autonomy of electric vehicles.

GiD will be the pre and postprocessor used by CIMNE, the coordinator partner

CIMNE is the partner that coordinates this project and all the simulations carried out by CIMNE will use GiD as pre and postprocessor.

‚ÄúThe Fatigue4Light project wants to help build a zero-emissions future by promoting design based on numerical simulation tools‚ÄĚ, says Lucia Barbu, the project‚Äôs coordinator and a researcher at the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE). ‚ÄúThe application of numerical simulation tools at a design stage can help to predict and ensure part performance, as well as minimise production losses by meeting the industry needs‚ÄĚ, Barbu adds.

Specifically, it is expected to reduce the development time of new lightweight components by up to 10 percent and increase the efficiency of the design stage by 7 percent.

Fatigue4Light includes 13 partners from 4 countries:¬†CIMNE,¬†Eurecat,¬†Lule√• University of Technology,¬†Centro Ricerche Fiat,¬†Magnetto Wheels Italy,¬†ArcelorMittal,¬†Gestamp Hardtech,¬†Politecnico di Torino,¬†RISE,¬†Profilglass,¬†Composite Service Europe,¬†Asociaci√≥n Espa√Īola de Normalizaci√≥n UNE¬†and¬†UPC.
