Finite element (FE) analyses of various manufacturing processes

Finite element analyses of thermomechanical manufacturing processes to predict the behavior of sheet material components, i.e. thinning, springback, final geometry, temperature, etc. Studies in forming, welding, and joining are performed in various materials, such as high-strength steels, aluminum, titanium, and nickel-base superalloys.

Cause

The purpose is to accurately predict the behavior of the material along the different steps of the manufacturing process, as well as its resultant geometry and properties. 

Method

The LS-DYNA simulation software is used to model and simulate different manufacturing processes, i.e. forming, welding or heat treatment. The results include strains, forces, and the final geometry of the component, among others, which are compared with experimental measurements from the process itself and/or material characterization tests.

Deliveries

The results are delivered according to agreement.
