Rigid-Plastic Finite Element Simulator with Adaptive Element Control for Practical Forging Processes
New finite element control has been proposed and developed to cope with large plastic flow of materials in practical forging situation; since composite triangular or tetrahedral elements are employed in the present approach, completely automatic mesh control can be available to trace the history of deformation and stress/strain states with reduction. Numerical examples are taken to demonstrate the validity and effectiveness of our developing system.
