In order to solve spring-back problem of the stamping forming process, A method for stamping forming and spring-back process simulation of automotive panel by finite element technologies was proposed. The solid model of automobile right side strengthening panel was created in UG software and transmitted to Dynaform. The stamping forming and spring-back process simulation were realized by using Dynaform. The distribution of strain, the variety of the sheet thickness and the spring-back were analyzed. The maximum stress or strain, the minimum thickness and the maximum spring-back were obtained. The simulation results can reflect the real stamping forming of the strengthening panel, and forecast the possibly spring-back value in stamping process. This research can optimize the stamping process and provide strong references for the design of the automotive panel die.
