Gleeble Welding Group Workshop and Meeting
You are invited to join fellow Gleeble users at the 2013 Gleeble Welding Group Workshop and Meeting.
Location: INSA Lyon, France
Dates: April 15th-16th, 2013.
Event Website: http://www.insavalor.fr/GWPS2013/Accueil.html
Share experiences and scientific results of Gleeble systems to understand microstructure and mechanical properties of welds.
> Any welding process: fusion processes (arc, resistance, laser..) or solid state (friction stir,…)
> Metallic materials: steels, aluminum alloys, titanium, nickel, magnesium, copper, etc
> Homogeneous or heterogeneous joining
> Discussion of research, scientific results as well as new techniques and simulation procedures, including challenges and solutions encountered during Gleeble experiments.
Who will attend?
• Colleagues working actively with any Gleeble system to simulate welding processes
• Groups working in the area of welding processes which are currently conducting Gleeble simulations or are considering purchasing a Gleeble system
• All who need Gleeble experiments for model validation and welding process optimization

3rd Meeting of the European Gleeble Working Group
Date: March 19th, 2013
Location: Institute of Metal Forming, TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany
The EU Gleeble Working Group was founded in 2007 in Freiberg with the aim of achieving information exchange between Gleeble operators. The 2013 meeting will focus on deformation and hot working of materials.
‐ Material properties and the influence of boundary conditions on its significance
‐ Optimization of the control software for testing with high strain rate
‐ Development of control and evaluation software for MaxStrain® tests
‐ Development of new software based on Windows
The meeting will take place the day before the international conference MEFORM which will also be held at TU Bergakademie Freiberg.

Gleeble Photo and Video Contest - Enter to Win an iPod Shuffle!
Lets do it again! Thank you to those of you that submitted photos in our first photo and video contest. It was so much fun, we decided to run another contest that will run through the end of 2012.
Who doesn’t love a good thermal mechanical physical simulation themed picture? We here at DSI certainly love them, and we want to see yours. In fact, we’re offering prizes for the best picture and/or video featuring simulations on a Gleeble.
> First Prize will be an iPod Shuffle, Second and Third place prizes are a surprise.
> You can submit pictures and/or videos, with a maximum of 5 submissions per user
> Pictures/videos should feature Gleeble tests/simulations. This includes tests using the General Purpose Jaws and any of the Mobile Conversion Units.
> You can enter the contest by either posting your videos and pictures in the Gleeble Forums (preferred) or if you would rather, you can upload them by using the “File Upload” tool. (Click on the main menu item titled “Parts, Service & Support”, then click “File Upload”) If you submit your files using the File Upload tool, please be sure to include your name and contact information in the Optional Message area.
> When submitting a video, please include a short description of the test you are running and any other information that you think will be helpful or interesting.
> The deadline for submission is Midnight on December 31, 2012. (EST)
> Please be sure that you post pictures and videos that can be publicly shared. All submissions must comply with our Terms and Conditions. DSI reserves the right to use submissions for training and promotional purposes.
Judging criteria: We are looking for pictures and videos that are aesthetic and interesting, but also capture the capabilities of Gleeble Systems. Tests should be set up as accurately as possible with particular attention to thermal gradients and specimen alignment. Lighting, and image/video quality are also important.
Good luck! We look forward to seeing your pictures and videos.
Congratulations to Dr. Vinod Kumar from the Steel Authority of India (SAIL) for winning an Apple iPod Shuffle in the first Gleeble photo contest that concluded in August. Dr. Kumar submitted this picture taken with a Sony digital camera of a carbon steel during a simulation on the Hot Torsion Mobile Conversion Unit that was installed recently in SAIL's R&D Centre.
