    Abstract

    Line Heating is the process of forming (steel) plates into shape by means of localised heating often along a line. Though any focussed heat source will do, the inexpensive and widely available oxyacettylene gas torch is commonly applied in ship production.Over the years, many researchers have addressed the problem of simulating the process, and although very few have been successful in gaining accurate results valuable information about the mechanics have been derived. However, the increasing power of computers now allows for numerical simulations of the forming process using a three-dimensional thermo-mechanical model.
