The 12th International Conference and Workshop on Numerical Simulation of 3D Sheet Metal Forming Processes (NUMISHEET 2020)

July 19-24, 2020 • Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel • Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The NUMISHEET conference series is the most significant international conference on the area of the numerical simulation of sheet metal forming processes. It gathers the most prominent experts in numerical methods in sheet forming processes and is an outstanding forum for the exchange of ideas and for the discussion of technologies related to sheet metal forming processes.

Two benchmarks are prepared: [BM1] Prediction of necking and fracture for a selected set of complex deformation histories; and, [BM-2] Springback prediction of a deep drawn product for a selected set of processing conditions. Details will be announced on the website in order to provide sufficient time to submit the simulation results. We believe the conference will be greatly enhanced by your valued support and participation and we are looking forward to hosting you in Toronto.


Kaan Inal, University of Waterloo (Chair)
Julie Levesque, Québec Metallurgy Center (Co-chair)
Michael Worswick, University of Waterloo (Co-chair)
Cliff Butcher, University of Waterloo (Secretary)
