SAE 2014 World Congress & Exhibition

Technical Session Schedule

Wednesday, April 9

Sheet / Hydro / Gas Forming Technology and Modeling (Part 3 of 3)
(Session Code: M201)

Room 115 A  1:00 p.m.

Failure modes, phase change materials, hydro-forming, hot stamping, warm forming and super plastic forming issues and applications in sheet metal forming are interests in this session. Papers for the Sheet/ Hydro/ Gas Forming Technology and Modeling Session advance the knowledge in the state of the art in all types of sheet metal forming. Topics include using simulated, analytical, numerical and experimental tools and sheet metals for the various forming technologies.

Organizers - Xiaoming Chen, U. S. Steel Corp.; S. George Luckey, Ford Motor Co.; Krishna Murali, General Motors Co.; Thomas Oetjens, Magna Intl.

Expert Panel Discussion: Measurement and Analysis of Forming Limit Diagrams Using DIC Techniques: One Year Later
Digital image correlation (DIC) techniques are increasingly being applied by engineers and researchers at automotive OEM’s, Tier 1’s, sheet suppliers, research laboratories and universities to characterize sheet metal formability. DIC enables improvements in strain measurement efficiency and accuracy directly supporting the development of more robust formability metrics such as forming limit diagrams (FLD’s). While DIC results are commonly used by stamping researchers and engineers to support product and manufacturing feasibility, there are no generally accepted industry test specifications and methods. This panel discussion will review DIC technology and applications as well as consider next steps toward industry standardization.
