Crimp Analysis Simulation Technology 2008-01-1271

Crimping is a fundamental technology that is widely used as a method to permanently connect a terminal and wire in the automotive wiring harness industry. The crimping process involves large deformations (that exhibit strong non-linear behavior) to create multiple contact points between the terminal and wire strands. This paper discusses analysis done with a finite element simulation technology specially developed for crimping, the usefulness of the analysis simulation, and future issues and prospects of this technology.
