Anyone tried forming simulation?

Anyone tried forming simulation?

Hi there.. hope this is in the right category..

I found a website called www.stampingsimulation.com and he reckons he can simulate the forming process in a draw die using something called finite element analysis and predict problems like wrinkles and splits.

I want to get him to do some simulation for me but first I want to know if anyone here has every heard of this or done it before. Is it something I can do myself? I think I will try him anyway, since he offered to do one for free.

Any info anyone has would be good.

RE: Anyone tried forming simulation?


Forming simulation is performed every day in industry to solve problems exactly like the ones you described.  It is a very powerful tool when used by an expert.  You would not be able to do this yourself without education and training of the techniques and software.

There is a lifetime's worth of information on the Internet, in books, and in technical journals.  Keywords to use would include forming, simulation, software, finite element, and finite volume.
