Abstract

The paper presents an overview of the advances in recent years on the finite element method (FEM) and on particle-based methods for the simulation of industrial metal forming processes. More specifically, we present the evolution of the FEM in the field from the early plastic/viscoplastic [...]

Abstract

In this paper some results of a wide experimental program are presented and compared with some finite element solution of sheet metal forming problems using a viscous shell formulation.[...]

Abstract

An important concern in sheet stamping is the risk of obtaining brittle final products that can be affected by fracture. Monte Carlo simulations presented herein show that this is governed [...]

This paper presents the application of an explicit [...]

Abstract

The pseudo‐concentration method is applied to the analysis of transient processes. A simple, easy‐to‐handle model is obtained by keeping an Eulerian description: it does not require [...]
