Introduction to the finite element solid formulation

Brian N. Legarth, Chris V. Nielsen, Paulo A. F. Martins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterEducationpeer-review


Metal Forming: Formability, Simulation, and Tool Design focuses on metal formability, finite element modeling, and tool design, providing readers with an integrated overview of the theory, experimentation and practice of metal forming. The book includes formability and finite element topics, including insights on plastic instability, necking, nucleation and coalescence of voids. Chapters discuss the finite element method, including its accuracy, reliability and validity and finite element flow formulation, helping readers understand finite element formulations, iterative solution methods, friction and contact between objects, and other factors. The book's final sections discuss tool design for cold, warm and hot forming processes.
