Objectives: This MS is focused on the presentation of recent innovative numerical techniques and methodologies adapted to the growing complexity of forming process simulations, including various non linearties as large inelastic deformations, contact/friction, crack initiation and propagation along with the computational robustness and predictive capabilities. Traditional Finite Element issues including meshing, element discretization and formulation, 3D adaptive methodologies are welcome, as well as alternative techniques such as meshless methods and the possible coupling between different approaches. Recent advanced solution techniques such as model order techniques or hyper-reduction techniques relevant in the scope of this topic are also of direct interest.

Traditional forming (forging, rolling, extrusion,…) but, noteworthy, recent processes that have attracted interest in our community (additive manufacturing, incremental forming, joining by forming, …) are most welcome.
