Developing of the finite element package DiekA started in 1980 by Han Huétink  

for Finite Element Simulations of large elastic-plastic deformations, with application to simulation of forming processes.

Dieka is freely downloadable from, including executables and source code for Unix, Linux and MS-Windows.

Examples of Applications:
          Design of Robust Forming Processes by Numerical Simulations
          Biaxial tester

Since  2012 research on Mechanics of Forming Processes is part of the research group   "Nonlinear Solid Mechanics",
under supervision of A.H.(Ton) van den Boogaard.
