Abstract: The numerical simulation of the Single Point Incremental Forming process (SPIF) is time consuming due to the necessity to take into account various non-linearity such as the material behaviour, large strain deformation and the evolution of the tool-flange contact. Classical contact algorithms give good agreement with experimental results, but are time consuming. In this paper, we investigate the development of a procedure to simplify the management of the contact interface between the tool and the sheet. Nodes…
