I am working on analysis of metal forming (bulk),
could it possible to analyze extrusion , rolling kind of process in feamp
plz help me
Advanced Non Linear solver option can do forming operations to some degree... better for plate forming / bending type problems, and bulk forming if the required mesh distortion is not excessive. However, extrusion can be quite challenging. Note that Advanced Non-linear does not include automatic re-meshing, and this may be necessary if substantial distortion of the original mesh is required to simulate the outcome. If an original element has to distort to an extreme shape, then the Advanced Nonlinear elements may not cope sufficiently.
I fully agree with EndZ comments. Here you are a video from the great Chip Fricke explaining the use of Advanced Nonlinear Analysis (SOL601) module (Adina solver) with an example:
Thanks for your extended support, to know the capabilites of FEMAP Nastran.
I have tried several attempts, but facing convergence issue. Due to excessive distortion of the element.
is there any way to over come the issue, as you have mentioned adaptive meshing.
if you are permit, i will upload the gemetry and modal information.
