Computational strategies for speeding-up F.E. simulations of metal forming processes

Abstract : An overview of various numerical methods developed for speeding-up computations is presented in the field of the bulk material forming under solid state, which is characterized by complex and evolving geometries requiring frequent remeshings and numerous time increments. These methods are oriented around the axis that constitutes the meshing problem. The multi-mesh method allows to optimally solve several physics involved on the same domain, according to its finite element discretization with several different meshes, for example in the cogging or cold pilgering processes. For quasi steady-state problems and problems with quite pronounced localization of deformation, such as Friction Stir Welding (FSW) or High Speed Machining, an Arbitrary Lagrangian or Eulerian formulation (ALE) with mesh adaptation shows to be imperative. When the problem is perfectly steady, as for the rolling of long products, the direct search for the stationary state allows huge accelerations. In the general case, where no process specificity can be used to solve the implicit equations, the multigrid method makes it possible to construct a much more efficient iterative solver, which is especially characterized by an almost linear asymptotic cost.
