Abstract: 
The invention relates to a method for transferring a stress state of an FE simulation result to a new FE mesh geometry of a simulated construction system, such as a component for motor vehicles that has a 3D shape, in a simulation chain of production operations, comprising: a) providing a first data set (D1), which describes the FE simulation result with a stress state of the FE simulation (FEN1) of the construction system or component (1) of a first production operation, b) creating the new FE mesh geometry (FEN2) of the simulated construction system or component (1), which new FE mesh geometry is associated with a second production operation, c) transferring the stress state of the provided first data set (D1) to the new FE mesh geometry (FEN2) of the construction system or component (1), d) performing an equilibrium calculation (R) by using the stress tensor (S1) in the FE mesh geometry FEN2, wherein deformation of the construction system or component (1) results, which deformation differs from the deformation in the FE mesh FEN1 by a shape alteration u > tolerance value ε, e) iteratively repeating the equilibrium calculation (R) as a cyclic equilibrium iteration in the new FE mesh geometry (FEN2) (in the new target FE mesh) of the construction system or component (1), wherein, in each cycle, a new stress state is applied to the FE mesh geometry (FEN2) of the construction system or component (1) and stress components that lead to undesired shape alterations are decreased until a displacement/termination criterion of shape alteration u < tolerance value ε is achieved, and f) displaying the fulfilled condition of u < ε.
