Wire extrusion

  • The ALE formalism is used for simulating this stationary process.
  • The mesh is Eulerian (every nodes are moved back to their initial position after each step). This avoids to consider a very large Lagrangian mesh.
  • The problem is axisymmetric.
  • The wire is pulled from the top through a rigid die.
  • The penalty method is used for the contact between the die and the wire.
  • After a brief transient state, the stationary state is reached.
