is a general purpose finite element analysis (FEA) software program
for the computer simulation of three dimensional metal forming
processes. NAGSIM.3D can simulate large plastic deformation of
the part. Its powerful solver uses a modified tetra element that
allows automatic meshing of complex parts.
Trial & Error in Forming. NAGSIM.3D can be
--- - Predict metal flow
--- - Predict non-fill conditions
--- - Predict defects and high stress
/ strain areas
--- - Optimize the preform shape
--- - Determine mechanical properties
of the formed part
--- - Determine influence of lubricants
--- - Improve tool life
graphical user interface is tailored for simulating metal forming
operations. It is very user-friendly and intuitive to use. NAGSIM.3D
provides a complete insight into the forming process. The results
include: Material flow, stress distribution, strain distribution,
formation of laps, force distribution and contact between the
part and the tools. Animation presents a clear visual of the forming
with NAGSIM.2D – NAGSIM.3D has the capability
to bring in results of NAGSIM.2D simulation for the previous operation
including strains. The program converts the 2D results into 3D
by revolving the 2D section about the Z-Axis. This feature is
extremely beneficial for Users that form parts in multiple operations.
The initial 2D operations can be analyzed in NAGSIM.2D and the
final operations involving 3D geometry are simulated in NAGSIM.3D
– NAGSIM.3D provides a simple method of importing geometry
of the tools and the initial blank drawings into the program.
