Conference-IQS-2017: Back to INDEX

Conference hold at IQS may 2017. From left to right Adria Biosca, Pavel Ryzhakov, Matthew Hyre, Andres Garcia, Vicens Pedret and Guillermo Reyes.

A conference on glass blowing simulation was hold at IQS in may 2017.
Dr. Guillermo Reyes as head of department of industrial Engineering at IQS welcomed all participants and introduced all speakers.
Dr. Vicens Pedret as CEO of Ramon Clemente introduced all talks and animated everybody to share their knowledge to improve glass blowing simulation tools.
Dr. Andres Garcia made an introduction to material characterisation for simulation Garcia presentation
Then the PhD candiadate Adria Biosca showed the needs for developing a simulation tool at Ramon Clemente showing initial results for blowing and drop tests in glass Biosca presentation
Dr. Pavel Ryzhakov showed the approach developed by CIMNE to simulate Glass blow Ryzhakov presentation
Finally Dr. Matthew Hyre showed some examples from his large experience in glass blowing simulation Hyre presentation
