GiD team is attending the COMPLAS 2017


This year COMPLAS is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the first COMPLAS conference in 1987 and the GiD team will join the celebration.

The COMPLAS 2017 will take place in Barcelona from 5th to 7th September.

GiD team will be present with its stand where you will be able to speak directly with the developers. Do not hesitate to ask your questions and discuss about the latests GiD news.

The objectives of COMPLAS 2017 are to address both the theoretical bases for the solution of plasticity problems and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and robust computer implementation. COMPLAS 2017 aims to act as a forum for practitioners in the field to discuss recent advances and identify future research directions.

COMPLAS 2017 is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). It is also an International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM) Special Interest Conference.

GiD will be present in CEM’17


The CEM’17 international workshop will take place from the 21st to 24th of June in Barcelona, Spain.

CEM’17 is a friendly platform to discuss recent progress in all areas related to computing, electromagnetics, computational science and engineering (CSE), multiphysics problems, high-performance computing (HPC), and parallel computing.

The GiD team will attend the workshop on its 10-year anniversary! We will be in our stand answering your questions and giving information about our latests developments.

Find more information about the CEM’17 workshop in their official website.

GiD is attending the NAFEMS World Congress 2017


The 2017 NAFEMS World Congress will take place from the 11th to 14th of June in Stockholm, Sweden.

NAFEMS is the International Association for the Engineering Modelling, Analysis and Simulation Community, a not-for-profit organisation which was established in 1983.

Among its principal aims is to improve the professional status of all persons engaged in the use of engineering simulation and establish best practices, promoting collaboration and communication.

The congress will focus entirely on engineering analysis, simulation, modelling and systems engineering and its impact on industry and beyond.

GiD will be present in the congress as an exhibitor. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit us in our stand, you will be able to talk with some of the GiD developers, ask them your questions and get more information about the latests GiD releases.

Find more information about the NAFEMS congress in www.nafems.org/congress/

See you in Stockholm!

First International Conference on the MPM in 10-13 January

Next week will take place the first international conference on the Material Point Method for ‚ÄúModelling Large Deformation and Soil‚ÄďWater‚ÄďStructure Interaction‚ÄĚ 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.

Please find all the details, including the conference topics and the programme in the official webpage.

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.

Visit iberaula.es or ibercursos.com for more information and stay tuned for upcoming courses.


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.

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!
