DEFORM is an engineering software that enables designers to analyze metal forming, heat treatment, machining and mechanical joining processes on the computer. DEFORM Systems include Automatic Mesh Generation (AMG), which allows users to specify remeshing criteria and optimization criteria for an intelligent mesh, based on solution behavior. The AMG system is optimized to meet the severe requirements of large deformation modeling. Forming equipment models are coupled into the simulation engine. The energy loss of a hammer, screw press or power limits of hydraulic press can be included in the analysis.
Corner unfill, load requirements and die pressures are available outputs. Graphical output includes deformed mesh (to demonstrate material flow), nodal velocities (to quantify local material flow at any time during the process) and field variables which are easily available. Graphics can be exported to word processors or other programs for reports or presentations.
Example applications include:
• gear carrier
• hot forged lever
• cold headed bolt
• rivet installation
• face milling simulation
• drilling simulation
• lathe turning
• hammer forging die stress
• axle beam forging and heat treatment
• gear forging and heat treatment
• induction hardening
• cogging with grain size
• shape rolling
• chevron crack
• three roll crimp
• martensite in workpiece
