Cutting aluminum simulation

Question asked by Andrea Zaratin on Sep 4, 2012
Latest reply on Sep 7, 2012 by Jerry Steiger


i have to simulate the cutting of a piece of aluminum. see attached assembly.

the upper blade should run one time direction along all the aluminum panel, and i'm interested in understanding the residual stress.

since i'm new about this kind of simulations, someone could help me??


some remarks:

- blade, bottom blade and guide could be considered with infinite hardness.

- geometrically the blade (obviously) goes in interference with the Alu panel along his way.


If someone could give support would be very appreciated!

Many thanks to you all,
