Stretch Flanging Formability Prediction and Shape Optimization 2006-01-0351

Flanging is a secondary operation in sheet metal forming processes. Traditionally, the design of flange shape and trim line is based on an engineer's experience. It takes several iterations to achieve the desired flange geometry because of potential splits. In this paper, an efficient CAE-based tool is developed to quickly predict the formability of a given flange design and enable the optimization of trim lines. A numerical algorithm is formulated in this CAE tool to convert the 3D flanging process into an equivalent in-plane deformation problem. The developed CAE tool is also integrated with the optimization software LS-OPT for trim line design.
