A finite element simulation of micro-mechanical frictional behaviour in metal forming

Zhang, S; Hodgson, Peter Damian; Cardew-Hall, Michael; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


Friction is a critical factor for sheet metal forming (SMF). The Coulomb friction model is usually used in most finite element (FE) simulation for SMF. However, friction is a function of the local contact deformation conditions, such as local pressure, roughness and relative velocity. Frictional behaviour between contact surfaces can be based on three cases: boundary, hydrodynamic and mixed lubrication. In our microscopic friction model based on the finite element method (FEM), the case of dry...[Show more]
