CAESES Users Meeting 2019
FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS is excited to invite you to the CAESES® Users Meeting 2019! This year, the event will take place in Berlin, Germany. Meet CAESES® users from all over the world, from various industries such as marine, turbomachinery, automotive and the aerospace sector.
When: Sep 18-20, 2019
The event venue Hotel Abion Spreebogen Waterside is located right in the heart of Berlin, with an amazing view, directly at the river Spree.
We have arranged a special rate for participants of this event at the Abion Hotel. The room rate per night is 125 Euro including tax and the breakfast buffet. Please note that pre-reserved rooms at the special rate are only available until June 17, 2019. Hotel reservations can be made through the direct reservation portal of the hotel. You will need to provide a credit card number to complete your reservation. You can also contact the hotel by phone +49 (0)30/ 399 20 992 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . If you do so, please mention the booking code “CAESES”.
Whether you want to stay in the conference hotel or in another hotel in the surrounding area: We strongly recommend booking your hotel room as early as possible. There are a lot of events and conferences in the month of September in Berlin and many hotels will be fully booked.
Right before the conference (Wed, Sep 18), we will offer CAESES® beginner and advanced workshops with hands-on exercises. The workshops will run in parallel sessions on Wednesday. For registration, please use the form at the bottom of this page.
Workshop 1: CAESES Introduction and Overview
This workshop is for anyone who has not used CAESES® so far, or who has just started with it, to get a jump start. We will give an overview of the software capabilities including hands-on exercises and best practices for beginners. The following topics will be covered:
- Introduction graphical user interface
- Geometry modeling basics, parameters and design variables
- Integration and automation of external CAE software
- Running design studies and optimizations
- Post-processing of result data
Bring your colleagues that haven’t been in touch with CAESES®!
Workshop 2: CAESES Advanced Use and Best Practices
Being a workshop for active CAESES® users, we will dig deeper into some geometry modeling and feature scripting issues. As an essential part of this interactive session, we want to discuss tasks and challenges that our users are facing.
So, we need your input for this workshop – send us your suggestions! What do you want to cover in this workshop? Which topics keep you busy in your daily work with CAESES®? Which CAESES® skills do you want to improve? Use the comment form below during the registration or simply contact us at any time.
The agenda for this workshop has not been fixed yet, but the following topics are getting prepared at the moment:
- Introduction to the next major version of CAESES
- Configuration and use of the new CAESES app view
- Advanced feature definitions with custom GUI, functions etc.
- Integration of CAESES into the ANSYS Workbench (ACT Apps), and into Optimus and OptiSLang
- User-defined custom attributes for any object
- Edit and manipulation of imported geometry, in particular, BRep edit mode
Workshop 3: CAESES and NavCad for Hydrodynamic and Propulsion System Simulation
Accelerate your use of CAESES for marine vehicle design with HydroComp NavCad® Premium as the simulation solver. In this interactive workshop you will learn how to quickly build and employ a coupled CAESES-NavCad solution for hydrodynamic design studies and optimization. Join us for hands-on instruction to connect CAESES with NavCad’s Vessel-Propulsor-Drive system simulation and its highly-efficient simplified-physics models for quick and easy design space evaluation. The workshop is suitable for new and experienced users of CAESES and/or NavCad, and will cover:
- Introduction to the NavCad interface and workflow
- Scope of NavCad system and component prediction models
- Connecting NavCad to CAESES as a coupled quiet simulation solver
- Quick start guide to really rapid design space evaluation (minutes not days)
- Creating initial conditions and benchmarking for CFD
- Workshop case studies – prepare and complete in real-time!
- How to get your 30-day trial of NavCad Premium
We are still creating the lineup, so stay tuned for an updated agenda in the next days and weeks! Confirmed presenters come from e.g. DNV GL, Kongsberg (formerly Rolls-Royce Marine), DEKC, MTU, KSB.
We are happy to announce that the keynote will be given by Philip Ehrhorn, the Co-Inventor of the “The Great Bubble Barrier“. In his presentation “Where the plastic problem begins and how we can tackle it with air bubbles”, Philip will talk about the global plastic pollution and what solutions can help to clean up our rivers and oceans.
On Friday, there will be special sessions for holistic ship design (with presenters from the R&D project HOLISHIP) and for advanced turbomachinery design (with presenters from the R&D project GAMMA). These sessions will give you deeper insights into how R&D additionally drives several CAESES developments. Both sessions will take place on Friday, Sep 20, 2019.
