The recently developed SSH3D solid-shell element, which is based on the Enhanced Assumed Strain (EAS) and the Assumed Natural Strain (ANS) techniques, is utilized for the modeling of a severe bending sheet forming process. To improve the element's ability to capture the through thickness gradients, a specific integration scheme was developed. In this paper, the performances of this element for the modeling of the T-bent process were assessed thanks to comparison between experimental and numerical results in terms of the strain field at the outer surface of the sheet. The experimental results were obtained by Digital Image Correlation. It is shown that a qualitative agreement between experimental and numerical results is obtained but some numerical parameters should be optimized to improve the accuracy of the simulation predictions. In this respect, the influence of the penalty coefficient of the contact modeling was analyzed. [less ▲]

The main aim of this paper is to model the T-bend test performed on multilayer coated metal sheets in order to measure the coating flexibility. Because of important uses of polymer coatings in many industrial applications and higher requirement on the quality of products, an accurate modeling of the T-bend process is therefore essential. During the modeling with the finite element method, the large thickness ratio between the different layers is likely to produce elements with an unfavorable aspect ratio. Therefore, to avoid obtaining inaccurate results linked to the shape of the elements, solid-shell elements are used in this study. These elements are based on the Enhanced Assumed Strain (EAS) technique and the Assumed Natural Strain (ANS) technique. These techniques permit to avoid locking problems even in very bad conditions (nearly incompressible materials, very thin elements conducting to large aspect ratios, distorted element geometry…). The EAS technique artificially introduces additional degrees of freedom (DOFs) to the element. They permit to increase the flexibility of the element which is very efficient for several locking issues. On the other hand, the ANS technique modifies the interpolation scheme for particular strain components. The ANS technique proved to eliminate the transverse shear locking from the element in bending dominated situations. Besides, a numerical integration scheme dedicated to Solid-Shell elements was implemented. It uses a user-defined number of integration points along the thickness direction, which permits to increase the element accuracy with a mesh containing a reduced number of elements along the thickness direction. The results obtained from numerical simulations are compared with some analytical results in order to check the strain predicted in the coated layer by FEM. This information helps to investigate the coating layer ductility in the real process. [less ▲]

Single Point Incremental Forming (SPIF) is a recent sheet forming process which can give a symmetrical or asymmetrical shape by using a small tool. Without the need of dies, the SPIF is capable to deal with rapid prototyping and small batch productions at low cost. Extensive research from both experimental and numerical sides has been carried out in the last years. Recent developments in the finite element simulations for sheet metal forming have allowed new modeling techniques, such as the Solid Shell elements, which combine the main features of shell hypothesis with a solid-brick element. In this article, two recently developed elements -SSH3D element [1, 2] and RESS3 element [3]- implemented in Lagamine (finite element code developed by the ArGEnCo department of the University of Liège) are explained and evaluated using the SPIF line test. To avoid locking problems, the well-known Enhanced Assumed Strain (EAS) and Assumed Natural Strain (ANS) techniques are used. The influence of the different EAS and ANS parameters are analysed comparing the predicted tool forces and the shape of a transversal cut, at the end of the process. The results show a strong influence of the EAS in the forces prediction, proving that a correct choice is fundamental for an accurate simulation of the SPIF using Solid Shell elements. [less ▲]

Two modeling approaches, analytical and numerical ones were carried out to simulate the mechanical behaviour of a coated metal steel sheet under thermo-mechanical loads. As the metallic film and the polymer layer have different dilatation coefficients, temperature increase and/or humidity variation can result in a compressive state in the metallic film, and yield to bucking. This phenomenon is called wrinkling. It can be prevented by a stiff polymer layer or a stable film due to adapted thickness and mechanical properties. Wrinkling phenomenon has received increasing attention because of important uses of polymeric coating in many industrial applications. To better understand and predict this phenomenon, analytical and numerical models have been developed and compared. [less ▲]
