Acad. Dorel Banabic

Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (UTCN), Department of Manufacturing Engineering, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Keynote Title: "Tendencies in sheet metal forming"

Bio: Dorel Banabic held the Professor possition at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (UTCN), Romania, Director of the Research Center in Sheet Metal Forming (CERTETA), UTCN, Director of the Graduate School in Manufacturing, UTCN, Romania, Member of the Romanian Presidency Commission for Politics in Education and Research, Humboldt grant (1996-1998) at the Institute of Metal Forming, Stuttgart University, Invited Professor at the Institute of Metal Forming, Stuttgart University (2000-2004), President of the European Scientific Association for Material Forming (ESAFORM), Fellow of CIRP (International Academy for Production Engineering), Fellow of the Academy of Technical Sciences of Romania, Fellow of the Romanian Academy, President of the Section of Technical Sciences of the Romanian Academy.
Prof. Dorel Banabic is member in the Scientific Committees of the most representative conferences in Material Forming: International Conference on Numerical Simulation of 3D Sheet Forming Processes (NUMISHEET); International Conference on Methods in Industrial Forming Processes (NUMIFORM); International Conference on Material Forming (ESAFORM); International Conference on Technology of Plasticity (ICTP); International Conference on Tribology in Manufacturing Processes (ICTMP); International Conference on Sheet Metal (SHEMET); Asia-Pacific Conf. on Engineering Plasticity and Its Applications (AEPA); International Conference on Metal Forming; International Conference of the IDDRG; International Conference in Industrial Tools (ICIT); International Conference on Design and Production of Machines and Dies/Molds, etc.
He is member in the Editorial Board of the following international journals: International Journal of Computational Materials Science, Gliwice, Poland; Manufacturing Review, EDP Sciences, Paris; Journal of Forging and Stamping Production, Russia; Computed Method in Materials Science, Poland; Journal of Production Processes and Systems, Hungary, Associate Editor of the International Journal of Material Forming, Springer, Editor-in-Chief of the ESAFORM Bulletin, Topical Editor of the Proceedings of the Romanian Academy, Bucharest, Romania, Editor-in-Chief of the Romanian Journal of Technical Sciences - Applied Mechanics, Romania.
His major areas of interest are: the anisotropic plastic behaviour of materials, formability of sheet metals and virtual fabrication. He developed a family of yield criteria for anisotropic metallic materials (BBC yield criteria) (BBC 2000, BBC 2005, BBC 2008). The BBC 2005 model has been implemented by the AUTOFORM software house in the commercial FE code AutoForm 4.1. The BBC 2005 and BBC 2008 yield criteria are also implemented by the Japan Association of Nonlinear CAE (JANCAE) in the Unified Material Model Driver for plasticity (UMMDp). The UMMDp will be used as unique platform for almost all FE codes for sheet metal forming simulation: Abaqus, ANSYS, ADINA, LS-Dyna, MSC.Marc and Radioss. The BBC 2008 model has been coupled with the ALAMEL crystal plasticity model developed at the Catholic University Leuven in a Hierarchical Multi-Scale framework that allows taking into account evolution of the plastic anisotropy during sheet forming processes. In the field of formability the main contributions are: theoretical and experimental research on the influence of the pulsatory loading on the FLC; proposal of a new method to increase the formability in superplastic sheet metal forming processes using the pulsatory loading; improvement of the Marciniak-Kuczynski and Modified Maximum Force Criterion models to predict the FLC; developing of the FORM-CERT user friendly code to determine the FLC; proposal of a new procedure for the experimental determination of the FLCs based on the hydraulic bulging of a double specimen.
