Forming simulations in ABAQUS
In this training package, different types of forming simulations are presented along with different tips. These points include increasing the solution speed, different types of plasticity and damage models, different solvers, Lagrangian, CEL, and SPH methods and etc. The material models used are also different and vary according to the type of forming process. Examples of forming examples include hot and cold forming, hot and cold rolling, drilling, hydroforming, incremental forming, extrusion, and bending.
