Results of the International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies 2016

The International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies was arranged by 11 Organizers in 8 countries. Students from 26 metal forming departments participated in the event on 22 - 23 April, 2016.

The competition between students consisted of the following steps: students got a drawing of an axisymmetric part after machining and designed the hot forged part and die impression for the final forging, determined the necessary technological chain for its manufacturing and then simulated the proposed forging process. Simulation was performed in QForm software for estimation and verification of the developed technology. In attachment you can find works including .qform files performed by the Olympiad winners.

We have collected all Olympiad results from International Committee members.
