11th International Conference on Numerical Methods in Industrial Forming Processes Held at IMR

Jul 19, 2013     Email"> PrintText Size

The 11th International Conference on Numerical Methods in Industrial Forming Processes (NUMIFORM 2013) was held at the Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMR) from July 6 to July 10, 2013. It is the first time that the conference was held in China.

About 200 experts and professors from more than 10 countries attended the conference. They launched academic exchanges on sheet metal forming, bulk forming, powder and ceramic forming, joint forming, manufacturing process and multiscale modeling method, material model, damage evolution, forming properties and defect.

Prof. F. Barlat, former chairman of NUNMIFORM and recipient of the 2011 Lee Hsun Lecture Award, formed good cooperation in macroscopic constitutive model with Prof. ZHANG Shihong’s group from IMR. IMR got a positive recommendation and support from Prof. F. Barlat in hosting this conference.

Nine foreign scholars, including Prof. Fabrizio Micari from the University of Palermo and Prof. Khemais Saanouni from the University of Troyes Technology (UTT) gave invited lectures on predicting the failure of ductile metal forming process, multi-field coupling analysis of hot forging process and accurate simulation of sheet forming.

The NUMIFORM was founded by Prof. O. C. Zienkiewicz from the Swansea University in 1982. It has been held every three years in U.K., Sweden, America, France, Holland, Japan, Portugal and Korea respectively. The UTT was identified as the host of the 12th International Conference on Numerical Methods in Industrial Forming Processes by the Executive Committee.
