Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.

- Crystal and polycrystal plasticity
- Main plastic forming operations : rolling, extrusion, deep drawing, wire drawing, forging
- Internal stress
- Contact mechanics
- Crystallographic textures
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
A. Macroscopic theory in 1D
B. Macroscopic theory in 3D (yield surface, J2 deformation theory, J2 flow theory, anistropic theory)
C. Crystal plasticity theory
Part II ' Other phenomena during plastic forming operations
D. Internal stress
E. Crystallographic textures
G. Contact mechanics
H. Microstructural evolution and high temperature deformation
I. Évolutions microstructurales et déformation à chaud
Part III ' Main plastic forming operations
- a project, by groups of 3 or 4 students, based on the use of the finite element code Abaqus to simulate a forming process under different operating conditions. The forming operation will be orally presented to the rest of the class, illustrated by the results of the finite element simulations. The oral presentation will be supplemented by a written report. The grading will account also for daily work during the semester.
- a set of imposed exercises the day of the written exam
- the answers to one or two theoretical questions selected within a list of about 10 questions of synthesis provided by the teachers during the year.
