[en] The purpose of this article is to develop an inverse method for adjusting the material parameters during single point incremental forming. The main idea consists in simulating tests performed on the same machine as the one used for the process itself. This reduces the costs of the equipment since no specific and costly standard test equipment is needed. Moreover, it has the advantage that the material parameters are fitted for a heterogeneous stress and strain state occurring during the real process. Before using the inverse method, the numerical results must be compared with the experimental ones. Several boundary conditions will be tested.
