QForm Olympiad

Students of mechanical engineering are invited to take part in the Online International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging and Extrusion Technologies, which will take place in April-May, 2020 at universities around the world.

The competition between students will consist of the following parts: participating students will get a drawing of an axisymmetric part after machining and should design the hot forged part and die impression for the final forging and then determine the necessary technological chain for its manufacturing and then simulate the proposed forging process. Also, students can choose an alternative task for developing a technological process of hollow aluminium profile extrusion. Simulation will be performed in QForm software for estimation and verification of the developed technology.

All universities taking part in the Olympiad will get a free 3-month network QForm software license for 3 places to practice before the Olympiad by request. Students could get free QForm Cloud Academic license to use it from home. The universities will also get the solved example from the previous Olympiad for review as well as a training course of simulation in QForm.
