LS-DYNA, Simulation of sheet metal forming processes

This 3-day course is intended for people who want to use LS-DYNA for metal forming simulations. The course will cover how different aspects of metal forming processes are modeled in LS-DYNA and how to do this as accurate and efficiently as possible. The attendee will acquire deep knowledge in settings and techniques in several parts of LS-DYNA which will be beneficial for his/hers daily work and future applications.

It is beneficial if the attendees have basic knowledge of FE simulations and LS-DYNA. LS-PREPOST will be used as a pre/post processor but Dynaform is an alternative if requested by the attendees.


How to set up a sheet metal forming simulation in LS-DYNA:

  • Boundary conditions
  • Masscaling
  • Contacts
  • Elements
  • Adaptivity

Post-processing in LS-PREPOST
Multistage forming processes
Springback compensation
Blank size optimization
Other forming processes

  • Hydroforming
  • Flex-forming
  • Tube bending
  • Trimming

 Thermo- mechanical coupled problems

 Material modeling

  • Plasticity theory
  • Anisotropy
  • Formability

Implicit solver

  • Gravity
  • Binder Wrap
