Abstract

Numerical modelling and simulation of metal forming is rapidly gaining prominence in many industries all over the world due to its effective saving of production time, effort and economy. In order to meet this need a special finite element code FORGE2 has been developed at CEMEF. In this work the theoretical basis of the FORGE2 along with its features such as thermo‐viscoplastic coupling, material compressibility and automatic mesh regeneration is reviewed and an attempt is made to simulate a few industrial forming processes taking into account the complex friction phenomena and thermal environment.
