This paper is devoted to the study of coupled electromagnetic, mechanical, and heat transfer processes at electromagnetic forming of tubes. A multiphysics mathematical model of coupled, high-speed electrical, magnetic, mechanical, and heat transfer processes in the system “Installation-Coil-Workpiece” taking into account the characteristics of the technological system is developed. Numerical simulation of electromagnetic forming was performed by a finite element method within the 2D axisymmetric approximation. The effect of the main process parameters and modeling technique on electromagnetic forming of aluminum alloy tubes are investigated.
