Metal Forming & Finite element simulation

This work shows various possibilities of the application of numerical simulation methods. The exactness of the solution is influenced by various parameters like flowing law, yield condition and boundary conditions such as friction or heat transfer. Material data combine the yield curve, density, conduction and so on. If all parameters are well chosen, the simulation will give reliable results. However, simulation and practical tests must be concluded together succeed in investigating new processes and production methods.

The following paper briefly includes the basics of simulation as well as the way from a real problem to the model. The implementation of various simulation techniques in metallurgy is shown by means of concrete examples. Process simulations, parameter studies and simulations of the properties of products are explained. The development of new processing methods by means of simulation is also
