Title: Computational Strategies for Polymer Coated Steel Sheet Forming Simulations

Abstract

This contribution discusses current issues involved in the numerical simulation of large scale industrial forming processes that employ polymer coated steel sheet. The need for rigorous consideration of both theoretical and algorithmic issues is emphasized, particularly in relation to the computational treatment of finite strain deformation of polymer coated steel sheet in the presence of internal degradation. Other issues relevant to the effective treatment of the problem, including the modelling of frictional contact between the work piece and tools, low order element technology capable of dealing with plastic incompressibility and thermo mechanical coupling, are also addressed. The suitability of the overall approach is illustrated by the solution of an industrially relevant problem.
