This session is mainly devoted to the introduction of engineering analysis
of industrial problems by well-established methodologies, utilizing finite element
simulation. Each presentation should describe briefly:
the practical problem to solve,
the main assumptions of the model,
the numerical method used,
constitutive parameters introduced in the model,
and a critical analysis of the results.
All the processes involving cold,
hot or warm plastic bulk deformation of metals and alloys are considered: such
as forging, rolling, ring rolling, wedge rolling, thread rolling, hydroforming,
riveting, cutting, machining, heat and surface treatments, etc.
