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

Benchmark Tests

The NUMISHEET Benchmark Study is designed to evaluate the state of the art, as known and practiced by industry and academic research organizations in their capability to predict the outcome of challenging problems in metal forming. A group of volunteers of the Benchmark Committees defines several metal forming challenges approximately one year prior to the NUMISHEET Conference and asks the metal forming community to predict what happens and report the results by a deadline several months ahead of the conference. The Benchmark Committees then compile the submitted results and report them along with measurements from experiments, which are made public for the first time at the conference

The benchmark challenges for the 2020 NUMISHEET Benchmark Study are as follows:

At this time, downloadable files are available only for BM1 and BM3.

Participants are encouraged to register their intent to participate in one or more of the benchmarks. Registering intent to participate is not an obligation to submit results, but ensures that the participant is informed of any updates. The report file describing participant predictions for the benchmarks will be accepted from January 15, 2020 to March 31, 2020. (Please note that the deadline has been extended from the original February 28 date.) Use the "Upload Report" button provided below.
