[en] This work presents an advanced numerical methodology which aims to improve the simulations of incremental forming processes . A specific numerical treatment is required to optimize the remeshing procedure, in order to decrease the simulation CPU time and deals with the strong process nonlinearities. The algorithm remeshing procedure is implemented in the Lagamine FE code  developed at the University of Liège. An elastoplastic law is combined with an isotropic kinematic hardening model. The identification procedure for the material parameters determination takes into account a set of mechanical tests (inverse approach).
Numerical simulations of the forming of a pyramid part with two wall angles are performed in order to address the robustness of the implementation and the ability of this numerical methodology to predict the force values. Comparisons between measured and predicted force values are performed.
