Abstract

In industrial metal forming processes a large number of parameters has to be considered. As is well known, this number can be reduced by a non-dimensional representation. Based on the example of an elasto-plastic cantilever beam, the non- dimensional form is derived in the framework of the Bernoulli-Euler theory. In the second step, a Finite Element analysis of a drop-test experiment is performed, and the results are presented in non-dimensional form. The results illustrate the advantage of the normalization.
