Micro-Texture Tailored Friction Modeling and Discrete Application in Drawability Improvement 2010-01-0982
Friction plays an important role in the deep drawing process. Previous research shows friction condition can be tailored by applying micro-textures on tooling surfaces. A friction model is proposed to reveal the mechanism of altering friction condition by configuring micro-texture. A discrete friction concept is proposed to improve drawability of sheet metal and demonstrates numerically on a non-symmetric geometry drawing process.
