ANSYS-Based Finite Element Analysis on Automotive Panel Drawing Die
Taking a company’s automotive panel drawing die as an example, this paper numerically simulates the process of drawing forming based on finite element analysis (FEA) software ANSYS, the design rationality of die structure is analyzed combining distribution characteristics of stress and strain, the paper also proposes feasible improvment measures according simulation analysis to optimize the structure of drawing die. The study result shows that analysis results based on ANSYS can forecast defect and failure regions in the forming process of automotive panel drawing die, optimize the design of drawing die, prolong the die life effectively, and reduce production cost.
