Punch and Die

Is it possible to simulate a punch and die in Algor MES package?


RE: Punch and Die

Indeed it is. It is not quite as smooth as in e.g. Abaqus but it can definitely be done. You just need to tweak the prescribed displacements, load curves and data curves in a smart way.

I am currently simulating a plate forming process (UOE-forming for pipelines) and even if it's quite tedious at times it definitely has the capability to.  

RE: Punch and Die

I'm trying to simulate a calandering process and have a lot of problems. Could someone help me?
