CAESES User Conference 2024
It’s that time again! FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS is delighted to invite you to the CAESES User Conference 2024.
When: September 9 to 11, 2024
Where: Mercure Hotel in Potsdam, Germany
Take this opportunity to meet CAESES users from all over the world, learn how your peers have approached and solved their design tasks, get an insight into the technical development of CAESES, brush up your knowledge, and get inspired.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
The CAESES User Conference 2024 will take place in the Mercure Hotel in Potsdam, Germany, right by the water of the river Havel and in the historic city center. The Potsdam main station, with connections to the German railway network, public transport, and the BER airport, is within easy walking distance and parking is provided in the hotel’s garage.
Scan the code below or visit this website to book your hotel room with a special offer for our event.
On the first conference day (Monday, September 9), starting from 10:30, we will offer a selection of modular workshop sessions that can be combined to your liking. Depending of the specific topics, these workshops are aimed at advanced CAESES users, as well as beginners, and will offer demonstrations, hands-on exercises, insights, tips and tricks, and the opportunity to discuss problems you would like to solve with CAESES. A detailed description of the topics covered will be available soon, but there is still time to voice your wishes. Please use the comment field in the registration form below or get in touch.
Throughout the conference, invited speakers and CAESES users from near and far will talk about how to create the most competitive products on the market and effectively make use of CAESES. You can expect exclusive and fascinating insights into the simulation-driven design of powertrain components, ship hulls, yachts, propellers, pumps, and turbines.
We are looking forward to your submission, if you would like to share some aspects of your work with the CAESES community. The following list will continuously be updated.
- Keynote: Trends and Challenges in Turbomachinery CFD – and the Differences to Marine Simulations (Dr. Thomas Hildebrandt, NUMECA Ingenieurbüro)
- From Simulation via Model-Tests to Full-Scale Trials for a Fast Monohull (Stefan Harries, Sebastian Uharek)
- Elektroboot Eins: Tip-Rake Propeller Design for an Ultra-Light Electric Boat (Heinrich von Zadow)
- H1 Unlimited: Designing a Propeller for Speeds of over 300 km/h (Andreas Arapakopoulos)
- Thermal and Structural Optimization of Powertrain Components with Simulation in the Cloud (Mattia Brenner)
- Topology and Shape Optimization of an Air Lubrication System (Hannes Renzsch)
- Dynamic Fluid Structure Interaction of Racing Sailboats (Stig Knudsen, DTU)
- The Application of CAESES from the Perspective of a Propeller Maker (David Bendl, Voith)
Networking and Fun
Of course, there will be plenty of time to network with your fellow engineers, in the welcome reception, lunches, dinner, and coffee breaks. Due to popular demand, we are bringing back “Die Guten” for some musical entertainment in the evening!
Also, this year, you will have a unique opportunity to take a close look at and possibly even a test ride of the Elektroboot Eins – an ultra light carbon fiber and battery electric runabout.
