  • Here assumptions themselves act as the demerit to the theory & are self explanatory that why this particular theory is unpopular in comparison to FEM. Further a lot depends on the mathematical assumptions &simplifications
  • The value of deformation itself is asssumed either to be higher or lower than the initial value. More the assumptions, more would be the errors. Further plane strain conditions mean that, components engaged in multi axial state of stress cannot be probed. Friction effects cannot be neglected in true conditions.
  • But in reality the material being deformed is heterogeneous most of the time (reinforced tyre, concrete etc). Here to assumptions act as demerits.

    4. 4. Upper & Lower boundary method Method approximates the values of deforming forces to be higher or lower than actual forces.“Any estimate of the collapse load of a structure made by equating the rate of the energy dissipation internally to the rate at which external forces do work, in some assumed pattern of the deformation will be greater than or equal to the correct load” -W.F. Hosford & R.M CaddellAssumptions of the method: Material being deformed is isotropic & homogenous There is no effect of work hardening William Hosford No friction exists between work piece & tool interface. Plane strain conditions assumed.

    7. 7. Finite Element AnalysisA brief history Concept was developed by the works of Richard Courant & Alexander Hrennikoff (early 40’s). Idea was originated to solve complex problems of civil engineering & structural analysis. Richard Courant Idea was promoted by Boeing to compute sweep of airplane wings (mid 50’s). M.J Turner & Ray W. Clough articles established the applications of FEA (mid 50’s). Idea was also used to compute roof of Munich Olympic stadium (late 60’s) Abhishek & Jitendra R.W.Clough 8

    11. 11. Space IncrementationFinite Elements: Every model is sub-divided into finite elements. Their junction points are called as nodes. Model assumes that forces act at nodes & stresses & strain exist at the finite element. Reliability of FEA depends on number of finite elements.

    14. 14. Space IncrementationMeshingNetwork of nodes is called a mesh.There are 2 broad mesh-generation methods. Unstructured( Formed automatically) A Structured (Formed by grid based sub-dividing of geometry) B Abhishek & Jitendra 15
    15. 15. Space IncrementationMeshing: Accuracy of results always depends on the assumptions. Fine mesh is considered where there are stress & strain gradients. A coarse mesh is used in the areas of reasonably constant stress or areas of interest. Abhishek & Jitendra 16
    16. 16. Protocols Gaps are not permitted during meshing. Nodes are numbered sequentially. Abhishek & Jitendra 17
    17. 17. Space IncrementationApproaches:LAGRANGE’S approach Mesh is bound to the material Mesh will be distorted with increasing deformation. Courtesy: FHWA. USA Abhishek & Jitendra 18
    18. 18. Space IncrementationEULER’S Approach Mesh is fixed & not bound to the material. Material flows through fixed mesh. Abhishek & Jitendra 19
    19. 19. Space IncrementationRemeshingWhy is it necessary? Formation of unacceptable shapes due to large local deformations. High relative motion between die surface & deforming material. Large displacement causes computational problems. Difficulties encountered in incorporating die boundary shapes with increase in relative displacement.To overcome above difficulties, periodic redefining of mesh is necessary Abhishek & Jitendra 21
    20. 20. Space IncrementationRemeshing comprises of following steps:1. Assignment of new mesh system to work piece2. Transfer of information (strain, strain rate, & temperature) from the old to the new mesh through interpolation. Image courtesy: Abhishek & Jitendra 22
    21. 21. SolversFor simulation of metal forming, following 2 solutions are used: Implicit method ( Stable, iterative, high computational effort) Explicit method (conditionally stable, no iteration, less computational effort) Abhishek & Jitendra 23
    22. 22. Implicit solvers Studies reveal that this solver is useful in smaller & 2D problems. Each time step or increment has to be treated as unconditionally stable process. Large time steps lead to larger iterations & process do not converge. (Newton Raphson method )Non- linear analysis of reinforced Abhishek & Jitendra concrete beam 24
    23. 23. Implicit Solvers In the implicit approach a solution to the set of finite element equations involves iteration until a convergence criterion is satisfied for each increment. Here computation is divided into several calculation time steps. At the end of each time step(increment) the equilibrium between internal & external load must be reached. Else iteration continues. Abhishek & Jitendra 25
    24. 24. Explicit solvers The finite element equations in the explicit approach are reformulated as being dynamic. In this form they can be solved directly to determine the solution at the end of the increment, without iteration. Two methods are followed for time step calculations. Abhishek & Jitendra 26
    25. 25. Explicit solversHere largest allowable time step for a stable solution depends on: Highest Eigen frequency occurring (ωmax )in the system Corresponding damping (ξ) ∆tm ≤ (2/ωmax)* ((1+ξ2)0.5-ξ)Sonic frequency & smallest element Le are estimated as follows: ∆ t ≤Le /C with C=(E/ρ)0.5 To compensate the disadvantage of extremely small time step, will be reduced through increasing the density or shortening the process time. Abhishek & Jitendra 27
