Title: Anisotropy and Formability in Sheet Metal Forming

Abstract

Two types of anisotropy have been introduced in the Marciniak model for the prediction of forming limit diagrams (FLDs) of sheet material. One type is due to crystallographic texture, the other is due to dislocation substructure. First, an anisotropic plastic potential is derived from a measured crystallographic texture using a multilevel model. The yield locus can be derived from this plastic potential. In addition to this, a model is used to simulate microstructure-induced work hardening and softening. This model can take effects of strain path changes into account. Both the texture-based and microstructure-based anisotropic model are then implemented in the Marciniak model and used for FLD calculation. Examples of application are given for IOF steel and for aluminium alloys. Recent research has focused on the physical basis of the microstructure-induced work hardening and softening. The principles of this model will be elucidated.

  • A closed form analytical model for the prediction of strain space formability as a function of temperature and strain rate is proposed. The analytical results are compared with experimental observations. For plane strain conditions, good correlation is reported. This work is significant to those aiming to incorporate formability models directly into numerical simulation programs for the purpose of design and analysis of products manufactured through the warm forming process.
  • The formability in sheet metal forming processes is mainly conditioned by ductile fracture resulting from geometric instabilities due to necking and strain localization. The macroscopic collapse associated with ductile failure is a result of internal degradation described throughout metallographic observations by the nucleation, growth and coalescence of voids and micro-cracks. Damage influences and is influenced by plastic deformation and therefore these two dissipative phenomena should be coupled at the constitutive level. In this contribution, Lemaitre's ductile damage model is coupled with Hill's orthotropic plasticity criterion. The coupling between damaging and material behavior is accounted for within the framework of Continuummore » Damage Mechanics (CDM). The resulting constitutive equations are implemented in the Abaqus/Explicit code, for the prediction of fracture onset in sheet metal forming processes. The damage evolution law takes into account the important effect of micro-crack closure, which dramatically decreases the rate of damage growth under compressive paths.« less
  • Manufacturing processes of aircraft, automobile and electronic components involve a lot of stretch-forming of sheet metals. The processes contain a large amount of straining which, in turn, may lead to plastic instabilities such as necking, slip formation or shear banding. Understanding the instability phenomenon requires the development of constitutive description of material characterizing the plastic instability and post uniform deformation behavior. The previous work on plastic instability usually lacks the experimental verification of the theoretical models. This may be owing to the complexity involved in designing a suitable experimental methodology for accurate measurements of strain in the locally deforming zonemore » as the deformation progresses rather rapidly once the local neck sets in. A review of the important methodologies and analyses that were and are used in investigating instability of sheet metal in uniaxial tension is presented in this paper. Some supporting results are also presented. 58 refs., 11 figs.« less
  • In this study, the dynamic- and static-explicit multi-scale finite element (F.E.) codes are developed by employing the homogenization method, the crystalplasticity constitutive equation and SEM-EBSD measurement based polycrystal model. These can predict the crystal morphological change and the hardening evolution at the micro level, and the macroscopic plastic anisotropy evolution. These codes are applied to analyze the asymmetrical rolling process, which is introduced to control the crystal texture of the sheet metal for generating a high formability sheet metal. These codes can predict the yield surface and the sheet formability by analyzing the strain path dependent yield, the simple sheetmore » forming process, such as the limit dome height test and the cylindrical deep drawing problems. It shows that the shear dominant rolling process, such as the asymmetric rolling, generates ''high formability'' textures and eventually the high formability sheet. The texture evolution and the high formability of the newly generated sheet metal experimentally were confirmed by the SEM-EBSD measurement and LDH test. It is concluded that these explicit type crystallographic homogenized multi-scale F.E. code could be a comprehensive tool to predict the plastic induced texture evolution, anisotropy and formability by the rolling process and the limit dome height test analyses.« less
  • In this study, we studied formability of PET/PVC laminated sheet metal which named VCM (Vinyl Coated Metal). VCM offers various patterns and good-looking metal steel used for appliances such as refrigerator and washing machine. But, this sheet has problems which are crack and peeling of film when the material is formed by deep drawing process. To predict the problems, we used finite element method and GTN (Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman) damage model to represent damage of material. We divided the VCM into 3 layers (PET film, adhesive and steel added PVC) in finite element analysis model to express the crack and peeling phenomenon.more » The material properties of each layer are determined by reverse engineering based on tensile test result. Furthermore, we performed the simple rectangular deep drawing and simulated it. The simulation result shows good agreement with drawing experiment result in position, punch stroke of crack occurrence. Also, we studied the fracture mechanism of PET film on VCM by comparing the width direction strain of metal and PET film.« less
