This work presents the case of a press clinching commonly met in the industry and denoted as TOX. The mechanical strength of the assembly is highly dependent on the final geometry of the clinched joint and among the numerous parameters which govern the process (applied load, lubrication, sheet thickness, friction, mechanical behavior of materials), the tool geometry plays a major role in the evolution of the final shape of the clinched joint. One of the objectives of this work is to provide an accurate numerical evolution of the final geometry of the clinched joint by the use of an adaptive remeshing procedure including error indicators and field variable transfer built by a meshless technique denoted as Diffuse Approximation. The resolution of the updated Lagrangian formulation is based on a static explicit approach (ABAQUS). Our numerical results are validated in comparison with experimental data.
