The International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies

The International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies is about to start.

We are glad to inform you that only one day remains before the start of The International Olympiad. QuantorForm Ltd. wishes to thank our international partners who helped us organize this event.

Tomorrow, April 22 at 8.30 Beijing time (GMT +8), 2.30 Moscow time (GMT +3) the first participants of the International Olympiad will start their work at the Beijing Research Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Technology (BRIMET) in China. They will draw lots before they start to determine a task for the participants. Then students from Hanoi University of Industry (HaUI) will begin the task and during the next few hours, students from Universities in Germany, Bulgaria, Italy, Poland, Ukraine and Russia will take part in this event.

Six tasks for the Olympiad were prepared by QuantorForm’s specialists in conditions of strict secrecy. Today three of the best of these tasks have been selected. From these three tasks, materials have been chosen and one task will be chosen for each participant from each country by draw lots. TU Bergakademie Freiberg (Germany), Institute for Metal Forming has tested and prepared rheology models of these materials for use in simulation in QForm by participants of the Olympiad.

Our special thanks to Bauman Moscow State Technical University (BMSTU) and Omsk State Technical University (OmSTU), who are the historical initiators of the Olympiad. This is our fourth annual contest. The first two years, only Russian students participated in the Olympiad. Last year, the Olympiad became an international event and this year the number of participants and universities has increased several times.

It is very interesting that engineers from a Power Engineering Company – «ARTOM» in Omsk, will solve the same task independently, of course not competing with students. This gives us hope that future Olympiads will be help between professionals also.

This year universities from 8 countries will participate in the Olympiad and will include more than 70 student participants. The International Olympiad is the final event from a chain of regional and universities’ competitions. By the results of these competitions, only the 3 best students from each university were chosen. Every county will choose which student will go to the international final and then an international committee will choose judge them and award an absolutely winner of the International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies.

We wish good luck to the participants of The Olympiad!
