Language of instructionGerman


AbstractThe lecture imparts the principles of the nonlinear Finite-Element-Methods (FEM), implicit and explicit FEM-integration procedures for quasistatic applications, modeling of coupled thermo-mechanical problems, modeling of time dependent contact conditions, modeling of the nonlinear material behaviour, modeling of friction, FEM-based prediction of failure by means of cracks and crinkles.
ObjectiveProzess optimization through numerical methods
ContentApplication of virtual simulation methods for planning and optimization of metal-forming processes. Fundamentals of virtual simulation processes, based on Finite-Element-Methods (FEM) and Finite-Difference-Methods (FDM). Introduction to the basics of continuum and plasto mechanics to mathematically describe the plastic material flow of metals. The procedures to acquire process relevant features. The exercises include the application of industrial simulation tools for deep drawing in automotive applications, high pressure inner metal working (space frame) and rod extrusion.
