Surrogate POD Models for Parametrized Sheet Metal Forming Applications


Article Preview

The aim of this work is to present a POD (Proper Orthogonal Decomposition) based surrogate approach for sheet metal forming parametrized applications. The final displacement field for the stamped work-piece computed using a finite element approach is approximated using the method of snapshots for POD mode determination and kriging for POD coefficients interpolation. An error analysis, performed using a validation set, shows that the accuracy of the surrogate POD model is excellent for the representation of finite element displacement fields. A possible use of the surrogate to assess the quality of the stamped sheet is considered. The Green-Lagrange strain tensor is derived and forming limit diagrams are computed on the fly for any point of the design space. Furthermore, the minimization of a cost function based on the surrogate POD model is performed showing its potential for solving optimization problems.
