New user? Advanced user? Professional user? Calling all SimScale enthusiasts, there is a new competition underway. All SimScale users from near and far are eligible to show off their Sim-skills including their simulation and post-processing abilities; within the SimScale community and beyond! Are you ready to be pitted against your peers in our SimScale Community Contest? On your mark, get set, simulate!
This year’s kick-off Community Contest asks participants to create a unique project related to one or more of the following industries:
Participants must include post-processed results as well as report on their findings in the comments of their project. The more descriptive, the better!
Entering the competition is simple!
What’s stopping participants from creating multiple projects to compete in multiple categories? Nothing at all! You can submit as many projects as you want using the aforementioned steps; please note that you will have to fill out the form for each project submission. Let the games begin!
Projects created by a user within a paid license or professional test license are not eligible for submission. But never fear! These users can still participate by creating a free Community account and a public project. This way, the (online) playing field is even for all participants. Any edits or entries created after the submission deadline will no longer be considered in the competition.
In case you find yourself running out of core hours, but are close to finishing your project, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll try to help you out with some more computation power.
All projects that follow our competition guidelines will then be judged by our in-house team of simulation professionals. To learn about all of our winning criteria, more information can be found in the contest guidelines.
This project looking at high-rise buildings in city blocks serves as a great example of what we are looking for in a winning project. The description, explanation of simulation steps, transcribed results, and simulation images are all very high quality. This post-processing image is a prime example of the kind of quality desired:

This year, the top projects will be eligible to win the following prizes:
The overall prize pool of 2000,- € is distributed as follows:
1st place prize within each industry category: 250,- €
2nd place prize within each industry category: 100,- €
3rd place prize within each industry category: 50,- €
