Effects of Forming: Using Manufacturing Process Simulation Results in CAE Performance Simulation

Manufacturing Process Simulation Community Event


In this event Trevor Dutton (Dutton Simulation) and Sjoerd Van der Veen (Airbus) discuss the potential benefits in the application of Manufacturing Process Simulation.

About this event

This event was being hosted by the NAFEMS Manufacturing Process Simulation Working Group (MANWG). The MANWG has formed an online Community for all engineers who would like to learn more about the use of virtual manufacturing tools within the product design and manufacturing cycle to improve outcomes in industrial manufacturing processes. For more information and to get involved go to the Manufacturing Process Simulation Community webpage.

The Presenters

Trevor Dutton, Dutton Simulation Ltd. Trevor graduated from Durham University in 1986 with a 1st Class Honours degree in Engineering Science. He has worked in the field of non-linear finite element analysis since graduating, and from the early 90’s developed considerable experience in the simulation of sheet metal forming processes. Trevor founded Dutton Simulation Ltd In 2003, providing solutions to the manufacturing industry in the form of software, consultancy support and research & development. He is the author of the NAFEMS publication “Why Do Manufacturing Simulation” (2017), along with a number of papers and articles for the NAFEMS community. Trevor is also the Chair of the MANWG Metals Focus Group.

Sjoerd Van der Veen, Airbus. Sjoerd started simulating manufacturing processes when graduating at the Delft University of Technology in 1996. He worked in the metals industry, using numerical simulation to improve processes and products. Since 2006 he has been with Airbus, where in 2010 he became the first eXpert in the field of Material Modelling and Manufacturing Process Simulation. Between 2011 and 2019, Sjoerd has put in place experimentally validated simulation capability for the manufacturing chains around Laser Powder Bed Fusion and Directed Energy Deposition, simulating the additive manufacturing itself, but also heat treatments and other operations that are key for the development of residual stress. Sjoerd is also the Chair of the Metallic Additive Manufacturing Focus Group of the MANWG.
