Modeling and Simulation of Metal Forming Processes by XFEM
In this work, 2-D/3-D forming problems (extrusion and deep drawing) are numerically simulated by extended finite element method (XFEM). The updated Lagrangian formulation is used to model the large deformation. The von-Mises yield criterion is used to model the elasto-plastic behavior assuming isotropic hardening. Penalty approach is employed to impose the contact constraints and non–penetration condition at the material interfaces. The level set approach is used for locating the material interfaces. The numerical simulations of two forming problems are presented using developed nonlinear XFEM code.
