PAM-STAMP - Wrinkle Simulation


Especially in a hot forming process, wrinkles can come and go. If they are not flattened out at the end they could even destroy a die. PAM-STAMP simulates wrinkles with no compromises as they would occur in reality, including folding. Only an explicit simulation scheme can do that thanks to the many small time steps and the ability to manage significant geometrical non-linearity’s without slowing down or even stopping the simulation.
