Abstract

Superplastic sheet metal forming process of complex parts are analyzed using two different types of finite element representation. The process involves large deformation, finite strain, nonlinear viscous material model with contact and frictional conditions. The finite element formulations and solutions are based on the discretization of the domain using continuum elements and thin shell elements; and it is shown that both the methods are useful at different stages of the process design.
