Finite element (FE) analysis of metal forming or assembling processes and structural systems have contributed to enhancing engineering power and engineers’ integrity. They are characterized by diversity and the need for high creativity of engineers and researchers. This webinar will present the state-of-the-art technology of FE modeling of plastically deformable bodies with an emphasis on the accuracy of FE methods and their creative applications to a wide range of plastically deformable bodies.
Topics include: Remeshing strategy and volume consistency, material modeling, flow modeling, flow line (or grain flow) modeling, tribological modeling, microstructural modeling and miscellaneous modeling's including air trapping, mean stress correcting for high-cycle fatigue life of die or tool, etc. Several application examples will be introduced.
