How to setup a Marriage simulation

Marriage of closures can be considered as a preparation process to have 2 parts in a combined position, to be then in the starting position for assembly, or welding, or hemming.

How to do Super Plastic Forming (SPF) simulation

Superplastic forming (SPF) is a process which enables geometrically complex shapes to be created from Titanium, Aluminum and Magnesium alloys. Forming is at a specified relatively high temperature and at a specified low maximal strain rate. With these conditions we are able to reach elongations o...

How to generate blank with variable thickness in Visual-Mesh?

In PAM-STAMP we can simulate some processes like hot-forming or superplastic forming where initial blank has variable thickness. Visual-Mesh has special functionality which can create mid-surface mesh with information about thickness per each element. There are the guidelines of workflow in Visu...

How to mesh a Tailored Welded Blank in Visual-Mesh?

If you need to create a tailored welded blank in PAM-STAMP with non linear welding lines or more than 2 straight lines with angle, you need to use VISUAL-MESH for blank mesh creation.
