Validation of the Computer Simulation Process Applied to the Incremental Forming Process for the Evaluation of Strain Paths
In recent decades,the forming area advanced both in terms of material used as well as in flexibilityand process cost reduction. New processes are been studied, including theIncremental Sheet Forming – ISF. The ISF is a process characterized by theproduction of small batches of parts, rapid prototyping, and manufacturingflexibility with reduced operational cost. This study aims to compare thecomputer simulation with real experiments from ISF. The results of strain pathsof the three main strains simulated were consistent with the experimentalmanufacture of a symmetrical sample.
