The thermo-mechanical forming research within Solid Mechanics at Luleå University of Technology is focused on phenomena connected to the mechanics of the material forming process and the resulting material properties. The aim is to predict the material and process response during the complete process as well as the final material state and properties of the component. The tools are numerical methods, e.g. finite element methods, for large deformation mechanical deformation analyses, including thermo-mechanical coupling as well as modelling of friction and heat transfer in contact interfaces. Achievements made in the research are based on long term industrial collaborations and the focus on industrial manufacturing processes and the resulting component properties.
