Study on the Finite Element Numerical Simulation of Automobile Crossbeam Stamping Forming
This paper is concerned with the quantitative effect of design parameters on the stamping process of automobile crossbeam. The considered parameters in this paper are the friction coefficient, the die fillet radius and the blank holding force, which greatly affect the metal flow during stamping. Based on the finite element numerical simulation, the stamping shaped process of the automobile crossbeam is numerical simulated with the explicit finite element method with various parameters by dint of Dynaform software. According to the simulation results, the forming limit diagram(FLD) and the wall thickness distribution of cloud on the stamping processes are technologically analyzed, the reasons and control methods of wrinkling are also pointed out, and then the optimal parameter combination of the automobile crossbeam is obtained by orthogonal experiments. It is noted that the parametric study of design parameters such as µ , BHF and RD are very important in the process design of the complicated member.
