Simulation of sheet metal forming using solid elements

October 14th: 10:00 - 11:00

Simulation of sheet metal forming is one of the oldest applications of LS-DYNA. So far, shell elements are the
dominant choice of discretization where the basis is a plane stress assumption and the thinning and
thickening are calclulated from the membrane straining. Although these type of simulations are valid 
for many cases, there are situations when a 3D representation is beneficial for instance when modelling
thicker sheets or parts with tight radii. This webinar will present the current status of LS-DYNA using 3D elements
in terms of forming specific functionality both in the solver and during post processing using LS-PREPOST.
