Applied Forming Simulation with eta/DYNAFORM

 

This course provides an introduction to the simulation of sheet-metal and hydroforming processes with eta/DYNAFORM and LS-DYNA. All steps required to set up a LS-DYNA forming simulation are covered. The eta/DYNAFORM program is a special preprocessor for simulation of forming processes with LS-DYNA. The LS-PrePost program is presented for use in postprocessing.


Content

  • Introduction in the simulation of sheet metal forming processes
  • Introduction in the software eta/DYNAFORM
  • Preprocessing in eta/DYNAFORM
    • Meshing of tool geometry
    • Meshing oft the blank
    • Definition of the blank (Selection of the material model, setting of the symmetry boundary conditions)
    • Definition of the tools (Selection of the contact formulation, setting of the friction, positioning of the tools, applying force- and displacement- boundary conditions on the tools)
    • Positioning of the tools
    • Boundary conditions
    • Definition of draw beads
    • Definition of adaptive meshing
    • Determination of the sheared blanks
    • Trimming of the sheet with eta/DYNAFORM
  • Calculation (explicit, static or dynamic implicit)
  • Multi-stage process definition with AutoSetup
    • gravity loading analysis
    • binder closing
    • drawing simulation
  • Postprocessing with LS-PrePost
  • Application examples with eta/DYNAFORM, LS-DYNA and LS-PrePost

 

The course is practice-oriented, with an emphasis on industrial applications. This seminar is suitable for users from the area of metal forming who wish to learn how to use eta/DYNAFORM and LS-DYNA to simulate sheet-metal forming processes or who wish to deepen existing knowledge.
