Influence of Strain State on Powdering of Galvannealed Sheet Steel 960026
Galvanneal powdering was examined on a stabilized ultra low carbon steel substrate as a function of strain state using cup drawing and in-plane stretching experiments to simulate deformations encountered in production stampings. Significant powdering was encountered in drawing while minimal powdering occurred in in-plane stretching. Powdering was measured at specific locations and correlated with strains in those locations. A powdering map was generated in strain space using the experimental data. A few measurements of powdering on selected regions of an automotive stamped part are reported.
