Speeding-up simulation of cogging process by multigrid method

Abstract : Calculation time of some material forming processes is tremendously expensive which makes reducing computational time one of the most urgent challenges in this domain. Among strategies that have been developed to speed-up calculations, one of the most flexible solutions is to utilize enhanced linear solvers such as Multi-Grid algorithm. It consists in using several levels of meshes of the same domain in order to more efficiently solve the systems of equations derived from the discretized problem. The speed-up results from the efficiency of coarse meshes in computing the low frequencies of the residual while fine meshes are more efficient in reducing the high frequencies of the residual. The method is integrated in the commercial software Forge® and applied to the industrial cogging process. The obtained results show that the speed-up depends on the number of nodes; for an industrial scale mesh of 50,000 nodes, the multigrid technique allows dividing the computational time by a factor of two.
