Analysis of Springback in Flanging Process at Higher Velocity using FEM
Full Paper(PDF, 580KB)
Abstract:
Springback always remains a major concern in the sheet metal forming industry. In this paper, springback analysis is presented in flanging process considering various parameters. In this process, it is difficult to get the flange leg of desired angle with a controlled shape due to elastic recovery of material. Springback generally depends on the forming velocity, geometric parameters and material of sheet. At high velocity the forming of sheet increases and springback decreases but it is difficult to predict springback analytically due to complex material deformation. In this study, commercially available Finite Element software is used to see the effect of higher velocity on springback and other parameters.
