A.M. Camacho, E.M. Rubio, M.A. Sebastián[a]
The ability to predict the performance of a particular manufacturing process is not always easy. Many factors are usually involved, and their influence can be critical in some cases. In drawing process there are several parameters that are related to the necessary energy to perform the process. However, the knowledge about the influence of these parameters is already scarce. Although there are several analysis techniques, the Finite Element Method has become an indispensable tool for analysing metal forming problems. In this study the drawing process has been simulated for different values of reduction, ...
