Type of Event: Conference, International

Scope of the conference covers IT-tools and advanced computational methods for solving practical problems in design and control of fluid power systems and includes the following:
  • Computational fluid mechanics (CFD) in application to design and analysis of fluid power components with focus on fluid mechanics and fluid structure interactions (2 and 3 dimensional wave propagation in fluids, including fluid structure interaction), handling changing geometry in CFD codes (as is the case for instance in any valve when changing its spool position), combination of network based simulation models with CFD methods,
  • Simulation of elasto hydrodynamic problems, coupling of FEM and CFD, thermal analysis.
  • Modeling and simulation of fluid power systems with special emphasis on software for analysis, design and control of fluid power system,
  • Real-time simulation.
  • Artificial intelligence applications in fluid power field.
  • Computer aided method for design (CAD, FEA, CAM) design and manufacturing H&P systems.), optimization, failure analysis and maintenance of fluid power components and systems
  • Information technology and web-based collaborative environments for research in fluid power technology *advanced visualisation/control techniques and their integration with fluid power technology, e.g. virtual reality technology.
