The adaptation of the volume of fluid method (VOF) to solid mechanics (VOS) is presented in this work with the focus on metal forming applications. The method is discussed for a general non-uniform mesh with Eulerian finite element formulation. The implementation of the VOS method in metal forming applications is presented by focusing on topics such as the contact between the tool and the workpiece, tracking of the free surface of the material flow and the connectivity of the free surface during the whole process. Improvement on the connectivity of the free surface and the representation of curves is achieved by considering the mechanics of different metal forming processes. Different applications are simulated and discussed to highlight the capability of the VOS method.
