Experiments and FE-simulations of stretch flanging of DP-steels with different shear cut edge quality

ABSTRACT Dual-Phase (DP) steels are today used in the automotive industry due to its large strength to weight ratio. However, the high strength of DP-steel does have a negative impact on the general formability in sheet metal forming. Unfavourable process conditions in the press shop will, on top of this, reduce the formability of DP-steels […]

Fatigue Life Prediction for PBGA under Random Vibration Using Updated Finite Element Models

ABSTRACT A procedure based on finite element (FE) modeling, response surface-based model updating and random vibration analysis is presented to predict the fatigue life of plastic ball grid array (PBGA) components mounted on daisy chain printed circuit board (PCB). A specially designed fixture is used to mimic the typical boundary condition of plug-in PCBs. The […]
