Description

Induction bending is a forming process used in industry to create bends in pipes of small bending radius and large diameter. Although pipe bending is a widely used engineering process, the optimum process parameters are decided on the basis of a trial and error method by highly experienced field engineers. An issue that has been occurring with this process is cracks forming in the pipe, which makes them unusable and wastes the time and money spent on the materials. Finite Element simulations will be done to model this process, and this report will investigate the cause of these cracks. The induction bending process will be simulated within Abaqus, and the resultant stresses and strains will be provided
