Registration Open Now: 18th International ESAFORM Conference on Material Forming

28.10.2014

ESAFORM is a European association with the mission to stimulate applied and fundamental research in the field of material forming. Its annual conference is used to achieve one of the association’s main goals: Spreading scientific and technological information related to material forming within academic and industrial communities.

Date: 15th – 17th April 2015
Place: Graz University of Technology, Austria

The 18th International ESAFORM Conference on Material Forming (ESAFORM 2015) is jointly organised by Graz University of Technology and VIRTUAL VEHICLE Research Center. It will be held for the first time in Austria and will take place at Graz University of Technology.

The conference will cover numerous disciplines related to material forming including metals, polymers, ceramics and composites. Innovative applications of materials, for example in medicine, are also welcome.

All traditional and new forming processes are considered relevant. All in all, the ESAFORM 2015 will bring together specialists from academia and industry all around the world, to discuss the latest technological innovations and recent achievements in material forming.

Conference Format

The conference is structured into several mini-symposia, following the format of parallel sessions. Plenary lectures will be given by outstanding researchers from both scientific and industrial fields followed by oral presentations by the participants, who submitted a paper for the conference.

The mini-symposia will cover topics, such as:
• Formability of metallic and composite materials,
• Forging and rolling and other forming processes
• Continuum constitutive modelling and scale transition modelling
• Additive manufacturing and non-conventional processes
• Structures, properties and processing of polymers (and biomass based materials)
• Innovative joining by forming technologies
• Intelligent computation in forming processes

Pre-Conference Workshop -
„Advanced Physical Simulation for Metals Forming“

The two days course will take place from 13th to 14th of April 2015. Topics will include thermo-mechanical simulation of industrial processes at laboratory scale (e.g. rolling or friction stir processing) as well as the description of the flow and its correlation with the microstructure evolution.

During the first day, experiments will be carried out at a physical simulator (Gleeble®3800). The second day will be used to interpret the flow data obtained and to carry out FEM simulation of deformed samples.

Conference Chairs
Prof. Christof Sommitsch, Graz University of Technology
Dr. Aldo Ofenheimer, VIRTUAL VEHICLE
