Introduction to HyperForm

Introduction to HyperForm

HyperForm is a comprehensive finite-element based sheet metal forming simulation framework combining an extremely fast one-step solver and a highly scalable and accurate incremental forming solver with the geometry and meshing capabilities of HyperMesh. This is an introductory class for sheet metal forming simulation with HyperForm for design engineers, manufacturing process engineers, and CAE analysts. In the first segment you will work hands-on with HyperForm One Step module for early formability analysis followed by blank nesting for material utilization. Next, using HyperForm Incremental module you will learn to perform detailed incremental analysis of single and multi-stage stamping processes based on available die designs to predict forming defects such as splits, wrinkles and springback.
