Project Description


Develop advanced simulations technology to account for temperature increase and adaptive control systems to adjust the machine settings during the start-up of the production line.

M2i FEA simulation work:

  • Implement a tribology based friction law in the commercial FEA software MARC
  • Simulation and validation of the thermo-mechanical behaviour of the deep-drawing tools in consumer goods production line
  • Reduction of computational time by using an extrapolation method

Industrial Benefits:

  • Reduce the computational time by 50%
  • Increased the accuracy of simulations, compared with deep-drawing with constant friction coefficient.
  • Reduce the number of experiments, the waste and time to market
