Technology Day 2020 - Plastics on the test rig

Our 17th Technology Day on the topic of "plastics on the test rig - testing and simulation" on 3rd and 4th March 2020
has reached the final steps of organization.

The venue for this year will be Hotel Travel Charme Bergresort (www.travelcharme/bergresort) in Werfenweng in the beautiful landscape of Salzburg. Please keep in mind that the room capacities are limited. Therefore we encourage you to book your rooms as soon as possible.

The event this year is dedicated to topics in the field of „plastics on the test rig – testing and simulation “. A deep understanding of the physical and mechanical properties of plastics is essential for the development of their components. Modern simulation tools are indispensable in accelerated product development. The aim of the event is to highlight the possibilities and challenges in the virtual description of the material behavior of plastics in reality. This understanding will greatly benefit reliability and development cycles of plastic components. People that are interested in the fields of plastics, simulations, testing and processing are warmly invited to participate, share ideas and discuss new possibilities.

Topics of interest:
Materials – new materials, physical properties of plastics

Process simulation – injection molding, extrusion, special processes
Structural simulation – creep, reliability, drop test, crash
Method development – simulation process, integrated simulation, micro mechanics
Material behavior – material models, dynamic material characterization, new testing methods, tribology
