The Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formalism is a breakthrough technique in the numerical simulation of the continuous-type roll-forming process. In contrast to the classical Lagrangian approach, the ALE formalism can compute the hopefully stationary state for the entire mill length with definitely effortless set-up tasks thanks to a nearly-stationary mesh. In this paper, advantages of ALE and Lagrangian formalisms are extensively discussed for simulating such continuous-type processes. Through a highly complex industrial application, the ease of use of ALE modelling is illustrated with the in-house code METAFOR. ALE and Lagrangian results are in good agreement with each other.

This paper extends the frictionless penalty-based node to contact formulation with area regularization to a 3D framework. Based on our previous work [1] focused on axisymmetric modeling, two computational methods are also considered for the determination of the slave node area. The first method, named as the geometrical approach, is based on a force equivalence system, while the second one, named as the consistent approach, is derived from a more sophisticated scheme elaborated upon the virtual work principle. Then, the extended contact elements are derived for the contact formulations with geometrical and consistent area regularization and a consistent linearization is provided accordingly, which guarantees a quadratic rate of convergence of the global Newton Raphson iterative procedure. Finally, two numerical examples assess the performance of both contact formulations with area regularization and demonstrates the robustness and the efficiency of the node to surface contact formulation with consistent area regularization in reproducing a constant contact pressure distribution across the interface between a deformable body and a analytically-defined rigid body, irrespective of the mesh. Our findings will certainly encourage further developments towards the design of a penalty based node to surface contact algorithm passing the contact patch test, as was already done successfully in 2D contact problems [2].

Finite element simulation of the roll forming process is regarded as an essential tool for the early design and optimization stages of a roll forming mill. However, such simulations are generally incredibly time-consuming, limited to some simple cases and to the pre-cut forming method. In contrast to the classical Lagrangian approach, the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formalism, which consists in decoupling the motion of the material and the mesh, can simulate the continuous process for the entire roll forming line at reasonable CPU cost by using a nearly-stationary mesh. In this work, the numerical results are compared to some experimental data on a U-channel in order to validate both Lagrangian and ALE models using our in-house code METAFOR. Furthermore, advantages of the ALE formalism are highlighted with the simulation of a tubular rocker panel on a 16-stand forming mill, which is a real industrial mill. [less ▲]

In industry, cold roll forming is more and more used as a manufacturing process mainly for its high productivity and its close geometric tolerances. However, most of the finite element simulations are restricted to the sheet to sheet process - the sheet length being smaller than the whole roll forming line - because the numerical models rely on a Lagrangian kinematics that is not very well suited for the forming of long sheets in a reasonable computational time. The Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formalism, which consists in decoupling the motion of the material and the mesh, has the capability to simulate the continuous process for the whole roll forming line at reduced CPU cost by optimization of the mesh. In the particular case of roll forming, the mesh nodes are fixed in the rolling direction but are free to move in transverse directions. Taking advantage from this approach, the mesh is only refined in the neighbourhoods of the forming tools for accurate modeling of contact and bending. [less ▲]

Viscoelastic problems deserve great interest in Computational Mechanics literature. In the last years different approaches have been proposed in order to model viscoelastic problems, as in the case of the generalized Maxwell model and its numerical implementation. In particular Kaliske and Rothert (M. Kaliske and H. Rothert, Comput. Mech., 19(3): 228-239 (1997)) discussed basic reological models and the formulation of a generalized Maxwell model and the corresponding implementation of three dimensional viscoelastic model both for small and large strain cases. The numerical implementation addressed by Kaliske and Rothert is quite simple for small strain case and can be extended to a large strain format amenable to be included in finite element codes SOGDE and Metafor. The implementation of the discussed model in a 1D constitutive model, written in Matlab, is addressed. The well known relaxation and creep tests are simulated and compared with analytical results. Furthermore, the influence of constitutive parameters on the viscoelastic response is discussed. In addition, the model is implemented in Finite Element codes and the obtained results are compared with the 1D ones. [less ▲]

This contribution aims at describing the numerical background associated to an efficient time integration procedure for thermomechanical elastic-viscoplastic constitutive model in a large deformation context. First, from the continuum mechanics point of view, the constitutive model is established. Within the framework of viscoplasticity, we have tried to remain as general as possible and the presented model encompasses under the same unified format, both {\it Perzyna-Chaboche} model of viscoplasticity which is well suited for moderate strain rates, as well as {\it Johnson-Cook} model which is a reference for metals submitted to high strain rates. Both incorporate nonlinear isotropic and kinematic hardening models. The classical rate-independent elastic-plastic model can then be easily recovered by setting the viscous terms to zero. Second, as the resulting continuum model is a stiff first order ordinary differential system in time, an integration algorithm is presented. This algorithm generalizes the classical "radial return algorithm", well established for elasto-plasticity, to thermo-elastic-viscoplastic models. The differential equations are numerically integrated using a thermoelastic predictor-viscoplastic corrector algorithm. The resulting algorithm is once again quite general and contains as special cases isothermal viscoplastic cases as well as classical rate-independent plasticity. Thanks to that generality, only one unified algorithm can be used both for plastic (rate-independent) as well as viscoplastic (rate-dependent) material models. Besides, in the formulation, a special care has also been taken so that all material parameters, including thermal dilatation, can be temperature dependent. As a consequence, it is also possible to model a continuous transition from elevated temperatures (that require the use of a viscoplastic model) to room temperature where rate-independent models are sometimes better suited by using a temperature-dependent viscosity that goes to zero as the room temperature is approached.

In this paper, we present a general consistent numerical formulation able to take into account strain rate, damage and thermal effects of the material behaviour. A thermomechanical implicit approach for element erosion to model material failure is also presented. This approach can be applied both to ductile fracture for metals, relying on a continuum damage mechanics approach, coupled to different fracture criteria, as well as composite material failure described with either a failure criterion or a progressive damage model. The numerical models will be illustrated by different quasi-static and high strain rate applications for both metallic alloys and composite materials. All these physical phenomena have been included in an implicit dynamic object-oriented finite element code (implemented at LTAS-MN²L, University of Liège, Belgium) named Metafor [1]. [less ▲]

In this paper, the mechanical properties of plasma-sprayed coatings are evaluated using the technology of nanoindentation. According to the indentation curve (load versus indenter’s displacement), which is recorded in an indentation experiment, the mechanical behaviour of the plasma-sprayed coating is investigated via inverse analysis using numerical optimization algorithms. The tip rounding of imperfect indenters is investigated in parameter identification. Subsequently, the hardness on the top surface and on the vertical cross section of the plasma-sprayed coating are investigated. The results show that the hardness on the top surface of the coating depends on the indentation depth. Moreover, the results show that the hardness on the cross section of the coating is significantly affected by the substrate if the indentation impression is too close to the coating-substrate interface.

This paper describes the implementation of failure criteria in an implicit finite element code. Tests are made with the Tsai-Wu criterion, which is widely used in the simulation of composite failure. The method is applied to the simulation of a tensile test of a laminate composite. The elasto-plastic material model of the composite ply, a polymer reinforced with woven carbon fabric, is described. Convergence of the results with respect to the mesh size and number of time steps is analysed and the reliability of the method is discussed. [less ▲]

In this paper, the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian formalism is used to compute the steady state of a 2D metal cutting operation and a 3D U-shaped cold roll forming process. Compared to the Lagrangian case, this method allows the use of a refined mesh near the tools, leading to an accurate representation of the chip formation (metal cutting) and the bending of the sheet (roll forming) with a limited computational time.
