Finite element simulations of high strain rate forming processes have received significant attention over the last decade. For instance, in Magnetic Pulsed Welding (MPW), extremely high plastic strain regions develop. Thus, a traditional pure Lagrangian analysis is not able to accurately model the process due to excessive element distortion near the contact zone. In this study, the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) method is used to simulate a MPW process while retaining a high-quality mesh. Also the ALE method was able to numerically predict the necessary process parameters to achieve a wavy pattern region for two Al6061-T6 plates impacted during the MPW process. The captured wavy pattern region in this study can be used as a first estimation of parameters necessary to achieve a successful MPW component and thus reduce trial and error experimental investigations.
