The colloquium will consider specific simulations of forming processes with friction and contact conditions related to new experiments and testing apparatus. This includes:
• the improvement of contact algorithms,
• the numerical identification of bulk behaviour of lubricants and coatings,
• the numerical characterisation of friction and wear.
• influences of coating and lubrication on the success of the forming process.
