International Conference on Superplasticity in Advanced Materials(OCSAM-200)
[en] This paper is concerned with the numerical simulation of hot metal forming, especially superplastic forming. A complete thermo-viscoplastic formulation at finite strains is derived and a unified stress update algorithms for thermo-elastoplastic and thermo-elastoviscoplastic constitutive equations is obtained. The resulting unified implicit algorithm is both efficient and very inexpensive. Finally, numerical simulations of superplastic forming are exposed.
