|[en] The Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formalism, which allows the computational grid to
move regardless of thematerial deformation, is a convenient way to avoid distortedmeshes in finite
element simulations. One crucial step of the ALE algorithm is the data transfer between the Lagrangian and the Eulerian meshes. In this paper, an enhanced transfer method is presented. It can handle complex finite elements which are integrated with more than one Gauss point. This method can thus be used either with an explicit or with an implicit time integration scheme. Choosing the adequate order of accuracy and the most appropriate number of physical fields to be transferred is always a compromise between the speed and the precision of the model. For example, some variables may be sometimes ignored during the transfer in order to decrease the CPU time. Therefore, the most effective way to use such an algorithm is demonstrated in this work by revisiting a classical ALE benchmark, the Taylor impact. An implicit thermomechanical ALE simulation of a high-speed tensile test is also presented and is compared to experimental results from the literature.
