Grahic Jump Location
Contact between tooling surface and sheet. A point on the sheet’s lower surface with position vector p is at a distance D from the rigid surface. The penetration distance is positive when p−ps has the same orientation as ns, the outward unit normal to the rigid surface.
Grahic Jump Location
Three-dimensional kinematics for a shell-like structure. The midsurface is defined by the vector r while a point off the midsurface is defined by position vector p . The covariant midsurface basis is ai and the covariant three-dimensional basis is gi.
