Formability Window of Tailor Rolled Blanks at Blank-Holder Force


Article Preview

As a new lightweight material and new technique,Tailor Rolled Blanks has a good prospect in energy-saving environmental protection and the future development of the automobile industry, formability window of Tailor Rolled Blanks at blank-holder force has important practical significance. Based on the research of a square box TRB, the paper proposes a theory of TRB’ formability window, also with the usage of an ABACUS finite element software to simulate the TRB sheet in the course of the critical wrinkling BHF curve and critical fracture BHF curve, to establish TRB formability window under the condition of blank holder force. The results not only show that the square box of TRB has the security zone in the deep drawing process, but also has got the wrinkling and fracture areas of the square box.
