Experimental and numerical prediction of springback in V-bending of anisotropic sheet metals for automotive industry

Ján Slota, Miroslav Jurčišin

DOI: 10.7862/rm.2012.5


Springback is a common phenomenon in sheet metal forming, caused by the elastic redistribution of stresses during unloading. It has been recognized that springback is essential for the design of tools used in sheet metal forming operations. A finite element method (FEM) code has been used to analyze the sheet metals V-bending process. In the work, three types of steels TRIP, AHSS and mild steel were used. Normal anisotropic material behavior has been considered. A contact algorithm for arbitrarily shaped rigid tools has been realized by means of accurate approach. This paper describes a robust method of predicting springback under bending and unbending of sheets. Constitutive models, aimed at predicting the final shape of the sheet after the springback by varying the setting of the operational parameters of the forming process, were discussed. The accuracy of the model was verified by comparison with results of PAM-STAMP 2G package and experimental results.
