The course contents as well as all further information about the course "Advanced Simulation Techniques in Metal Forming I" in summer semester 2023 can be accessed via the "Moodle Course".
The finite element method (FEM) is one of the most widespread calculation methods in modern engineering. In particular, the FEM is used to model and simulate manufacturing processes such as metal forming. Extended in terms of appropriate material models, these simulations provide a deeper understanding of the effects of the underlying process parameters on the material and structural properties of the final workpiece. As a consequence, such computer simulations facilitate process improvement to obtain workpieces with desired or improved properties.
The lectures focus on the following topics:
Basics of continuum mechanics
Fundamentals of the finite element method
Hyper-(in)elasticity vs. hypo-(in)elasticity
Specific structural finite elements
Cycle: Summer semester
The module basically consists of a weekly lecture and a weekly exercise. The exercise will take place as a programming exercise in the CIP pool. The details about concrete times and rooms, as well as all further information, can be found in the Moodle course.
Form of Examination
The examination consists of a student project with presentation and oral examination.
