Numerical Investigation of the Limit Strains in Sheet Forming Involving Bending
TypeCommunications avec actes
In this work, the finite element method is used to simulate a typical FLD test over tools of different radii. Parameters like the mesh density, element type, numerical determination of the onset of strain localization, limit strain definition etc. have been investigated. Finally, the limit strain for plane strain tension has been determined as a function of the thickness vs. tool radius (t/R) ratio. These simulations confirm that increasing the curvature of the tool increases the value of the limit strains. They also reveal that, as soon as bending becomes important, the practical relevance of the limit strains diminishes - At least with their current definition. The need for new strain localization models is emphasized, together with some of the associated challenges.
