Elastic Press and Die Deformations in Sheet Metal Forming Simulations

ABSTRACT Never before has the car industry been as challenging, interesting, and demanding as it is today. New and advanced techniques are being continuously introduced, which has led to increasing competition in an almost ever-expanding car market. As the pace and complexity heightens in the car market, manufacturing processes must advance at an equal speed. […]

Simulation-Driven Design Approach for Design and Optimization of Blankholder

¬†ABSTRACT Reliable design of stamping dies is desired for efficient and safe production. The design of stamping dies are today mostly based on casting feasibility, although it can also be based on criteria for fatigue, stiffness, safety, economy. Current work presents an approach that is built on Simulation Driven Design, enabling Design Optimization to address […]

Study of Ligament Length Effect on Mode Mix of a Modified In-Plane Shear Test Specimen

ABSTRACT Shear fracture toughness is an important material behavior that needs to be determined and considered in many industrial fields. At the same time, shear testing is one of the complex material testing areas where available methods are few, often need special arrangements, and most of the methods do not strictly satisfy the definition of […]
