This conference is a unique opportunity to obtain real word know-how on competitiveness and gain performance into your product lifecycle! Please join us and our customers, partners ecosystem to exchange on how we can make the use of composites more affordable and predictable!
This year’s conference will be all about “Predictable composites” and how one can use multi-scale material modeling to reduce cost associated with composite materials & structures while increasing performance.
The conference program structure will include 2-days of technical presentations from customers, Digimat experts and technological partners on October 4-5. October 6 will offer the possibility to follow a Digimat training and to meet with our technical team members.
Highlights Oct 4-5:

Former attendees think...
“There is a significant increase in the use of composite materials in aircraft and automotive applications. Because of many unknowns related to composites, especially in aircraft applications, we are not exploring the full capability of composite materials. Therefore, efficient micro-mechanical modeling of fiber-reinforced composites is essential for understanding the material behavior in macro level. Currently, NIAR research team is looking into developing procedures with benchmark examples to use Digimat to support certification by analysis to reduce the burden of testing for every single variation in constituent level.” -- Dr Waruna Seneviratne, Research Scientist & Technical Director, Composites & Advanced Materials Laboratory, NIAR
"The UM14 managed to gather some of Europe’s best researchers in multi-scale material modeling as well as many highly regarded companies dealing with complex micro-structural issues, bringing real industrial problems and concerns to a broad, open and professional audience. The conference peripherals were outstanding and Rome is always worth a trip. Many thanks to the great staff and enthusiastic e-xstream organization team!" -- Raphael Neuhaus, Dipl.-Ing. aerospace engineering, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing
