Paper Title:
Influence of the Adaptive Remeshing during Simulations of Sheet Metal Forming Processes
  Abstract

In this work, an adaptive remeshing scheme is presented in order to simulate with accuracy sheet metal forming processes. During simulations of metal forming processes, large plastic deformations with ductile damage occur and severe mesh distortion takes place after a few incremental steps. Hence frequent remeshing of the part must be performed in order to carry out the finite element analysis. The necessary steps to remesh the damaged structure during the simulation of the sheet metal forming process are given. The adaptive remeshing based on refinement and coarsening techniques, is controlled by geometrical and physical size maps. This remeshing strategy has been coupled with a projection method in order to avoid problems of contact between the part and the rigid tools. The influence of the remeshing is studied on numerical examples which show the capacity of the proposed procedure.
