A Bursting Failure Criterion for Tube Hydroforming

2002-03-04
2002-01-0794
Fundamental differences exist between sheet metal forming and hydroforming processes. Sheet metal forming is basically a one step metal fabrication process. Almost all plastic deformation of an originally flat blank is introduced when the punch is moved normal to a clamped sheet metal. Hydroforming, however, consists of multiple steps of tube making, pre-bending, crushing, pressurization, etc. Each of the above mentioned steps can introduce permanent plastic deformations. The forming limit diagram obtained for sheet metal forming may or may not be used in hydroforming evaluations. A failure criterion is proposed for predicting bursting failures in tube hydroforming. The tube material's stress-strain curve, obtainable from uniaxial tensile test and subjected to some postulations under large stress/strain states, is used in judging the failure.

Choosing the correct thermoplastic for an instrument panel application requires a thorough understanding of the environmental and performance conditions. In the case of a high speed event, such as an airbag deployment or a knee bolster intrusion, standard static tensile properties may not adequately define the material performance. The engineer needs to understand the materials sensitivity to high strain rate extremes. The subject of this paper is the enhancement of part performance through the testing and knowledge of material performance over a range of strain rates.

A Combined Mode Fatigue Model for Glass Reinforced Nylon as applied to Molded Engine Cooling Fans

1985-02-01
850522
The use of glass reinforced nylon in fatigue inducing environments calls for a new method of stress analysis. With an engine cooling fan, both mean and vibratory stresses need to be examined. Speed cycling can cause tensile fatigue, while vibration can cause flexural fatigue. Since tensile and flexural stresses exist in the fan simultaneously, a combined mode fatigue model is needed. The proposed model is based on high cycle flexural and tensile fatigue strengths, and tensile strength. It relates measurable strain to stress using temperature dependent flexural and tensile moduli, and treats underhood temperature and desired product life as variables.

A Comparative Examination of the Resistance Spot Welding Behavior of Two Advanced High Strength Steels

2006-04-03
2006-01-1214
Advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are a class of steels that have a minimum tensile strength of 500 MPa. The advantages of AHSS include superior formability and better crash energy absorption compared with conventional low-strength steels having a minimum tensile strength of 270 MPa. Several steels with a minimum tensile strength of 590 MPa have already found use in current vehicles, and others with minimum tensile strength up to 980 MPa have been qualified for use in future vehicle models. Two 780 MPa steels of interest are 780 DP (Dual Phase) and 780 TRIP (TRansformation Induced Plasticity). In this study, an examination was undertaken to compare the resistance spot-welding behavior of commercially produced 1.6 mm-thick, hot-dipped galvannealed, 780 MPa DP and TRIP steel sheet. Included in the study were evaluations of the weld lobes, weld microhardness, and the shear- and cross-tension strengths of resistance spot welds for the two steels.

A Comparative Study of Two RVE Modelling Methods for Chopped Carbon Fiber SMC

2017-03-28
2017-01-0224
To advance vehicle lightweighting, chopped carbon fiber sheet molding compound (SMC) is identified as a promising material to replace metals. However, there are no effective tools and methods to predict the mechanical property of the chopped carbon fiber SMC due to the high complexity in microstructure features and the anisotropic properties. In this paper, a Representative Volume Element (RVE) approach is used to model the SMC microstructure. Two modeling methods, the Voronoi diagram-based method and the chip packing method, are developed to populate the RVE. The elastic moduli of the RVE are calculated and the two methods are compared with experimental tensile test conduct using Digital Image Correlation (DIC). Furthermore, the advantages and shortcomings of these two methods are discussed in terms of the required input information and the convenience of use in the integrated processing-microstructure-property analysis.

A Comparison of the Response of HSLA and Dual Phase Sheet Steel in Dynamic Crush

2001-10-16
2001-01-3101
Continuing pressure to reduce mass and cost of vehicles is driving the development of new high strength steel products with improved combinations of strength and formability. Galvanized, cold rolled dual phase steel products are new alternatives to conventional high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel for strength limited applications in vehicles. These steels have higher tensile strengths than HSLA products with nearly equivalent formability. This paper compares the performance of HSLA and dual phase sheet steel products in a series of drop tower tests. Samples were prepared by stamping the steel sheets into typical rail-type parts using a production-intent die process. The parts were sectioned, and subsequently fabricated into hat-shaped assemblies that were then dynamically crushed by a drop weight. The experiments were designed such that the entire energy input by the drop weight was absorbed by the samples.

A Critical Assessment of Forming Limit Prediction Models and Beneficial Modifications to Them

2012-04-16
2012-01-0020
Major forming limit prediction models and calibration methods are reviewed briefly and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Two modified Marciniak-Kuczynski (M-K) models and one modified NADDRG (Keeler-Brazier) model are also presented which have some advantages over conventional models. In the first modified M-K model, material non-homogeneity has been substituted for geometrical non-homogeneity to reduce the sensitivity of the traditional model to variations of the initial non-homogeneity. Using this important advantage, a semi-empirical relation is proposed to predict the value of the initial material non-homogeneity. In the second modified M-K model, the conventional calibration method (which requires an experimental point, corresponding to plain strain condition, to find the initial non-homogeneity and calibrate the model) is revised and the uniaxial tensile point, which is easily obtained, is proposed to be used in the calibration process.

A Critical Review of Different Experimental Approaches to Calibrate Numerical Sheet Forming Simulations

2007-04-16
2007-01-1685
The calibration of yield functions for numerical sheet forming simulations is done using different experimental approaches such as the uniaxial tensile test, the bulge test, etc. How accurately the material behavior of dedicated aluminum, conventional and high strengths steel grades subjected to various loading conditions can be modeled is investigated using e.g. uniaxial tensile test data only. Different formulations of yield functions that are widely used in industry (e.g. Hill'48, Hosford'79, Hill'90) are considered. It is shown that tensile test data is insufficient to successfully calibrate yield functions for numerical sheet forming simulations especially for aluminum and pronounced anisotropic steel. The use of improved formulations of yield functions is emphasized.

Automakers are putting ever more emphasis on their environmental and energy efficiency efforts through improving the fuel consumption of vehicles. One way of saving energy is to reduce the total weight of the vehicle by using high strength steel. Hyundai steel developed a new 780 MPa grade of hot rolled high strength steel with excellent stretch flange formability in which the ferrite matrix is strengthened by ultra-fine, nano-sized precipitates. The material developed in our study met the material requirement of OEM's material specification with 780 MPa tensile strength and 55% hole extension ratio. Steel grades of 780 MPa were applied to develop front lower control arm for automotive chassis. In order to evaluate the performance of materials, primary design, durability and strength analysis of materials were prepared in collaboration with suppliers. Prototype of front lower control arm was fabricated and durability test and strength test were performed.

A Fatigue Prediction Method for Spot Welded Joints

2013-04-08
2013-01-1208
Generally linear finite element analysis (FEA) is used to predict fatigue life of spot welded joints in a vehicle body structure. Therefore, the effect of plastic deformation at the vicinity of the spot welded joints is not included on fatigue prediction. This study introduces a simple technique to include the plastic deformation effect without performing elastic-plastic finite element analysis. The S-N curve obtained from fatigue test results is modified to consider this effect. Tensile strength test results of spot welded joint specimens were utilized to find the load range for FEA equivalent to the applied load range for fatigue tests. To demonstrate the proposed approach, fatigue test results of advanced high strength steels (AHSS) for lap-shear and coach peel specimens were used. Both the specimen types were tested at various constant amplitudes with the load ratios of R=0.1 and 0.3.

A Formable-Strengthenable Sheet Steel

1974-02-01

High-strength cold-rolled sheet steels offer a potential to accomplish weight savings through gage reductions. However, the reduced formability which accompanies increased strength presents difficulties in the application of these steels for sheet metal stampings which require the formability equivalent of deep-drawing steels. A new deep-drawing sheet steel is being developed which overcomes the formability limitations of high-strength cold-rolled steels. Parts made from this steel can be uniformly strengthened to a high yield strength, up to 120,000 psi (827 MPa). Strengthening is accomplished by a 1200°F (921°K) heat treatment in a controlled atmosphere which results in internal nitridation. The nitrides formed by the alloying elements in the steel provide precipitation hardening. No distortion of the parts results from the heat treatment. The effect of heat-treating variables on tensile properties, weldability, fatigue, and toughness, are discussed.
