Electro Magnetic Forming (EMF) is one of the methods for forming the metal plates with high speed; electromagnet force is used as a forming agent in this process. In this thesis, it simulates transient analysis of electromagnetic coil and structure analysis of high speed forming process. Whole of the high speed forming process time is divided in several processes. At the beginning of the first stage the voltage and the geometric, physical and mechanical specifications of the workpiece and coil and the mold are entered to the ANSYS software and the magnetic parameters of the process such as magnetic field density and the simulation current is extracted. Also in this stage magnetic force is obtained in Ansys software and by applying them in workpiece in LS-DYNA software, agent analysis of the process and shape of piece is obtained. In the second stage the pipe deformation obtained in the first stage is transported to the electromagnetic section of process in Ansys software. Also in this process, after forces computation in Ansys, the results sent to the agent section in Ls-Dyna software. This interaction between these two software is repeated several times until whole the process time is finished and final shape of pipe is obtained. The results of simulation are compared whit experimental test results. so The accuracy of this method was confirmed. The simulation and experimental results indicate that with increasing the capacitor energy, the peak current and electromagnet force are increased and finally displacement of pieces also increases.
