Laser forming simulation tutorial in Abaqus

The laser forming process is performed by applying thermal stresses to the workpiece surface by heating the surface with a laser beam. These internal stresses induce plastic strains in the part resulting in local elastic-plastic deformation (Laser-induced plastic deformation). In this laser forming simulation tutorial the DFLUX subroutine is used to apply heat flux (Gaussian heat distribution) dependent on location and time in finite element simulation. For example, the linear heating processes of laser forming and welding (with a slight simplification) can be simulated by this subroutine. In the linear heating process, by applying heat flux to the surface of a sheet, a thermal gradient is created in its thickness. This thermal gradient causes permanent deformation of the sheet. To simulate the laser forming process, it is necessary to apply a time and location-dependent heat flux to the sheet. In this type of loading, a heat flux is applied on the plate, which is defined using the DFLUX subroutine, including the laser power, movement speed, beam diameter, absorption coefficient, and laser movement path according to the designed experiments (Laser forming process parameters). To verify this Abaqus laser forming simulation, the simulation results and experimental results of sheet deformation (U) are compared. The displacement of the sheet in the simulation is in good agreement with the experimental results.

Cold Forming Simulation Using Abaqus CAE | Residual Stress Analysis

Have you ever heard of cold forming process? It refers to the reshaping of metals into desired forms at room temperature. It suits well for parts requiring high precision and a good surface finish.  While cold forming offers many advantages, it is important to consider the potential for residual stresses within the material. The residual stresses in cold-formed components can influence their behavior, potentially affecting the quality of the final product. Experimentally measuring these stresses can be challenging. Numerical simulations offer a solution for cold forming residual stress analysis. Among the available numerical methods, Abaqus cold forming simulation has gained significant attention from researchers and practitioners. This training explores Abaqus cold forming analysis in detail. It includes three workshops that cover different steps in the cold forming process. For validation purposes, we have compared the results for the numerical simulation of cold forming with a reference solution for each workshop.

Hydroforming simulation in Abaqus

Notice: This package will be available one week after purchase. Hydroforming is a metal forming process that allows the shaping of various metals, such as steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, and brass. It is a cost-effective and specialized form of die molding that utilizes highly pressurized fluid to shape the metal. Hydroforming can be classified into two main categories: sheet hydroforming and tube hydroforming. Sheet hydroforming uses a single die and a sheet of metal, while tube hydroforming involves expanding metal tubes using two die halves. Hydroforming simulation in Abaqus is a valuable tool for optimizing the hydroforming process. It enables engineers to predict and analyze important factors such as material flow, stress distribution, thinning, and wrinkling during the forming process. By accurately simulating the hydroforming process, engineers can optimize key parameters like fluid pressure, die design, and material properties to achieve the desired shape with minimal defects. In this package, you will learn hydroforming process simulation with the SPH method and using time-pressure curve.
