The metal-forming process of shell nosing at room temperature was analyzed by the finite-element method. The strain-rate effects on materials properties were included in the analysis. In cold nosing simulations, the nine-node quadrilateral elements with quadratic velocity distribution were used for the workpiece. The treatment of a moving boundary in the analysis of nosing is discussed and successfully implemented in the finite-element program. FEM simulations of 105-mm dia. shells of AISI 1018 steel and aluminum 2024 were performed and solutions were obtained in terms of load-displacement curves, thickness distribution, elongation, and strain distributions. Comparisons with experimental data show very good agreement.
