Abstract

The lubricant entrapment and escape phenomena in metal forming are studied experimentally as well as numerically. Experiments are carried out in strip reduction of aluminium sheet applying a transparent die to study the fluid flow between mesoscopic cavities. The numerical strategy is based on a weak fluid/structure coupling involving the Finite Element
Method and analytical calculations. It allows to quantify the final shape of the lubricant pockets
