There are significant challenges to be faced in order to meet the CO2 emissions targets and combat climate change. We have to reinvent processes and products quickly, and new materials are of course part of it.
Transvalor helps you to acquire knowledge about new materials so that you stand in the first place in the competition for new products.

We are pleased to invite you to our first event dedicated to the simulation of microstructural evolution.

Why attend this event

  • Discover the possibilities given by our software suite to predict microstructural evolutions: from casting to forging and welding to fatigue analysis.
  • Learn how Transvalor helps customers to characterize new material properties at the microstructural level.
  • Meet our industrial and academic customers and see how they use our software and benefit from the simulation
  • Discuss with Transvalor experts and see how the Transvalor solution covers the entire manufacturing chain. On top of the presentations there will be a dedicated technical booth to exchange with our experts on how Transvalor can help overcome your challenges.

>>Due to Covid restrictions, this event is limited to 40 participants only.<<


What to expect in the agenda

Discover the latest state-of-the-art approaches to meet your microstructural challenges on steels, Ni-alloys, aluminum and other materials. Learn more about grain growth, recrystallization and precipitation during forging and heat treatments.
  • Design new materials and stand in the first place in the competition
  • Reduce industrial risks related to the microstructure of your material
  • Optimize your processes and parts for their applications
  • Understand and control the grain size evolution in your parts


Preliminary agenda

We show you the important place the prediction of the microstructure occupies in industry and research in order to define new materials and improve the quality of the products.

Technical booth

The Transvalor experts will be available during the networking times in a dedicated area. Learn more about predicting the microstructure in the various forming processes. Our employees will be happy to show you how the Transvalor simulation solutions for forging, casting, etc. can give you a competitive edge in your production.

Cozy Get-Together

Personal networking is very important to us, which is why the event is designed in such a way that there is time for extensive exchanges during the conference and of course a cozy get-together on Tuesday evening.

Simulation solutions for microstructure evolution

Transvalor is involved in research projects for more than 10 years to develop solutions for simulating the microstructural evolutions of metals alloys.

The purpose is to help industrials to predict microstructure changes, at the mesoscopic scale and on Representative Elementary Volumes (REVs), during metal forming processes.

For any inquiry concerning microstructure prediction in our solutions, let's get in touch.
