10th GiD convention has been successfully adapted to the online format

The 10th GiD convention was celebrated on July 20th in a new format, due to the pandemic situation.

Despite the challenge of adopting a 100% online format, GiD team is proud of the success of the event.

The convention was composed by presentations from GiD problemtypes and interfaces developers that showed their latest advances.

Also, the GiD v15 new features were revealed in a live session with the GiD team and the speakers where participants were able to ask their questions in the live chat.

The convention was widely followed. More than 160 persons participated in the live broadcast and the videos accumulate more than 1500 visits.

The GiD team and the speakers are proud to have created a free and accessible material that will last over time and will be useful for sure.

All the presentations, pre-convention videos and the live session are available in the GiD YouTube channel and the official website.

10th GiD Convention, Online Edition

gidconvention

The new GiD v15 will be released on 20th July and the GiD team will celebrate the launch with a special event.

During the same day, the 10th GiD convention on Advances and Applications will take place.

Online edition

Due to the pandemic situation, it’s not possible to perform a presential convention as past editions, so GiD team has prepared an online edition for the 10th anniversary of the convention, where the attendees will be able to participate on the event¬†virtually.

Despite the change of the format, the GiD convention will maintain the objectives of past versions, creating a space to share ideas and experiences on the generation of data for computer simulation and the graphic visualization of numerical results.

The 10th GiD convention will bring together GiD users and problemtypes developers that will present their latest advances in video format.

What’s new in GiD v15?

Furthermore, GiD team will present the new features of GiD v15 and you will be able to participate with your questions and requests.

As in previous editions, many launch offers will be available.

Don’t miss the opportunity and join us at this event.

Please check www.gidhome.com/2020 and GiD social media channels for updated information.

The new GiD version 14.0.4 includes Chinese language

The new GiD14.0.4 official version has been released and is ready to download from our webpage.

One of the main improvements for this version is the inclusion of the Chinese language translation.

With this new feature, the GUI messages can be displayed in three different languages, English, Spanish and Chinese.

BEASY

The translation has been done with the collaboration of BEASY, an internationally recognised leader in computer simulation for Corrosion Control, Galvanic Corrosion, Signature Management, Defect Assessment and Crack Growth Simulation.

Working constructively with GiD team and BEASY’s agent in China, BEASY were able to efficiently exploit the latest version of GiD (14.04) in order to implement a Chinese language version of the BEASY Corrosion Manager and BEASY PolCurveX software products, both of which have now been released to customers.

The structuring of data and access to associated support tools (such as RAM Translator) from CIMNE, considerably facilitated the work involved, and BEASY certainly recommends any other providers of products incorporating interface to GiD to seriously consider the benefits of being able to offer products incorporating Chinese script as well as other languages.

How to change the language

The language can be easily changed through the preferences window.

Just select Utilities -> Preferences… in the top menu bar, select the Language dropdown menu in the General branch and choose your preferred language.

You just need to click on the Apply button to confirm your selection.
