IBFEM-4i 2019 – Swansea UK

September 9 - September 12

The second annual Image-Based Finite Element Method for Industry (IBFEM-4i 2019) is aimed to will facilitate a wider adoption of image-based modelling and provide a platform to discuss the cutting-edge developments in the field. This event will be the ideal forum for the fostering of ideas and the establishing of new collaborative links, helping to build strong networks within UK and at an international level. 


The event will consist of two parts. Delegates can attend one or both:

  • Day 1-2: user training of the various techniques required for image-based modelling
  • Day 3-4: users’ workshop with keynote talks, presentations and a networking reception

This year’s keynote speakers will be Prof Anton du Plessis (Stellenbosch CT Facility, South Africa) and Dr Tristan Lowe (Manchester X-ray Imaging Facility, UK). Training will include sessions on ‘From image to simulation with VGSTUDIO MAX’, Random Finite Element Method (RFEM) and Open source image-based meshing.

Who should attend

The training is intended for academic researchers and industry professionals who are newly interested in image-based modelling or want to build on their basic understanding of this powerful technique.

The workshop is intended for academic researchers and industry professionals interested in learning about applications of image-based modelling in manufacturing and new exciting ways it may be coupled with machine learning to drive digital twin technology.
