Study on the Drawing and Trimming Springback Characteristics of Cylinder Shallow Shell of Tailor Welded Blanks
In this study, the springback law of generatrix direction, circumferential direction of tailor welded blanks (TWBs) cylinder shallow shell impact from blank holder force, punch profile radius and sheet thickness was researched by finite element analysis, which was compared with non-welded blanks. The results show that: in the circumferential direction, with the increase of blank holder force, the trimming springback of the tailor welded blank of the thickness combination of 1.2mm and 0.8mm (TWB1208) is decreased firstly and then increased, which is larger than that of the non-welded blanks of 0.8mm and 1.2mm. With the increase of punch profile radius, the drawing and the trimming springback of TWB1208 are both increased, and after trimming, the both springback are greater than that of the non-welded blanks. With the increase of the quadratic difference of thickness, TWB1208, TWB1612 and TWB1608, the drawing springback is decreased, and the trimming springback is gradually increased. In the generatrix direction, when blank holder force is less, the distortion deformation of TWBs is serious, and after the trimming, it is decreased according to the increasing blank holder force. With the increase of punch profile radius, the distortion deformation is larger. The greater the difference of thickness is, the more serious the distortion deformation is.
