The Study on Numerical Simulation of Tailor Welded Blanks on Square Cup Stamping
The stamping process of the tailor welded blank(TWB) was simulated by the software of DYNAFORM. The finite element model of a boxy part was founded, and the forming of different thickness and properties of the material was studied. Meanwhile, the influence of weld seam on forming result was analyzed. The results show that the weld seam model which founded by real properties can describe the plastic deformation and strain distribution more exactly in the forming process.
