The formability of a material is an important consideration in the design of manufacturing processes for that material. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) allows for the relatively rapid and inexpensive determination of material formability and reduces the number of experiments needed to be performed. The validation of a finite element model against established forming experiments, which cover all deformation modes, allows the modelling of more complex components. In this study, aluminium is used to...[Show more]
