Computer simulation methods for metal forming processes based on Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) finite elements, adaptive mesh deployment techniques and hydrodynamic lubrication finite elements are developed. The emphasis is placed on the interaction of the tool and metal workpiece by including the effects of lubricant flow, pressure gradient, film entrainment, surface roughness and sliding. It provides a more realistic modeling of contact, lubrication, and frictional stresses.
