In this work a Lagrangian nite element approach for simulation of metalforming is presented, based on the so-called Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM). Thegoverning equations for the deformable bodies are discretized with the FEM via a mixedformulation using simplicial elements with equal linear interpolation for displacements,pressure and temperature. The use of PFEM for modeling of metal forming processesincludes the use of a remeshing process, -shape concepts for detecting domain boundaries,contact mechanics laws and material constitutive models. The merits of the formulationare demonstrated in the solution of 2D thermally coupled metal forming processes usingthe particle nite element method. The method shows good results and is a promisingmethod for future simulations of thermally/coupled forming processes.
