Preventing future problems and troubleshooting existing problems in today's stamping plants requires greater stamping process knowledge. The link between inputs and outputs isn't as clear as many think, increasing the need for detailed understanding of the variables involved. This course discusses the key inputs and outputs associated with sheet metal stamping, including important elements for controlling the process and making it more robust. The course reviews sheet metal characteristics and their application, especially from a formability standpoint, using many automotive-related examples. Common issues such as springback, dent resistance, and process differences among mild steel, high strength steel, bake hardenable steel, and aluminum are discussed.

There is a potential for metal fatigue in any situation where a component is subjected to cyclic loads. Fatigue failures of various types are a key concern in increasing the reliability of products. Problems involving fatigue have become more severe with the demand for lighter weight structures and components. The effective use of fatigue analysis and predictive tools is critical for reducing the development time of new products. Two methods of metal fatigue analysis will be covered. The first is the stress-life approach. This method is used for high cycle or very long life fatigue problems where loads have fairly constant amplitude.

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are now commonly used in automotive body structural applications. The high strength of this grade classification is attractive to help reduce mass in the automotive body through reduction in thickness. Strength also supports improvements in safety requirements so that mass increases are minimized. In some specific grades of AHSS, energy absorption is possible in addition to the high strength. This course will review the definition and properties of AHSS and cover several common applications in automotive body structures. In addition, key manufacturing areas including stamping and welding will be addressed to demonstrate the increased challenges as compared to lower strength steel grades.

Abstract The beneficial effects of contact disruption in modulation-assisted machining of aerospace alloys have been well documented, but sources for such improvements are not well understood. This study explores the underlying nature of differences that occur in energy dissipation during conventional and modulation-assisted machining by characterizing the relationship between controllable process parameters and their effects on chip formation. Simultaneous in situ force and tool position measurements are used to show that the forces in modulation-assisted machining can be described by empirical force models in conventional machining conditions. These models are found to accurately describe plastic dissipation over a range of modulation conditions and configurations, including in cases where energy expenditure decreases with the application of modulation. These observations suggest that the underlying response in modulation-assisted machining is analogous to that of conventional machining.

This specification covers an aircraft quality, low alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, and forging stock. These products have been used typically for parts requiring a combination of high tensile strength and good ductility with relatively high impact strength and hardness, but usage is not limited to such applications. Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking after heat treatment. ARP1110 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
