In this graduate student project, a finite element model was developed to simulate the sheet metal bending process. The model consists of top punch, bottom die, and sheet metal. Using a transient analysis, the deformation and stress distribution in the sheet metal forming process is simulated. The model can be used as a design tool to optimize the forming process in the future.
