The 13th International Conference on the Technology of Plasticity (ICTP) will take place online from July 25th to 30th, 2021.
This major event for the metal forming science community gathers scientists and engineers from across industry, academia, and government to share their latest improvements and innovations in all aspects of metal forming science and technology, with the intent of facilitating linkages and collaborations among these groups.
Transvalor won't miss the occasion to contribute to the conference and present recent works accomplished in the domaine of the magnetic pulse forming process.
Dr. José Alves, scientifique software developer will give a talk entitled:
Advancements in the simulation of magnetic pulse forming processes with FORGE®
In this work the latest developments on the electromagnetic (EM) module of FORGE® and the derived improvements for simulating the magnetic pulse forming process are presented. The following aspects are covered:
- Advanced material description for high intensity magnetic fields where coupling with the material data base software JMatPro® is extended to account for the EM phenomena;
- Integration of the forming limit diagrams (FLD) for analysis of thin sheets forming;
- Improved meshing/remeshing for large displacements in the fully immersed multi-objects approach, where a particular focus is given to the fields transfer stage, showing how the overall CPU time can be reduced by half or more;
- Introduction of an advanced 2nd order time-stepping integration method based on an asynchronous interpolation that was previously developed for thermal-shock problems and is now extended to the computation of EM fields showing excellent convergency and stability properties.
These developments have been integrated in FORGE® software.
